No friendship is NOT about "supporting your friends even when you know they're wrong."
That's not friendship. That's being an enabler. That's being an accomplice.
Friendship is loving someone enough to tell them to stop being a goddamn idiot before they ruin their lives.

I saw this quote during the time that I was having a rough time with my own relationship. I hated how the "friends" decided to support him. Or to let him. Or those who advised and told him, "whatever makes you happy"

How could you advise someone to pursue their own happiness while knowing someone is hurting?

Fast forward.  I have moved on. I have a new life.

One of my friends seems to be headed the same path. On the opposite side. I think. But I don't know the full story. I don't need to know.

One thing clear : I want her happiness without hurting herself or anybody. Perhaps too much to ask. But that's what we all want to the people we love right?

I always believed in LOVE.  Well, it's not a license to hurt someone. But if you love then you love. Do the proper way of leaving your current relationship and go fight for your love. Or whatever that is. Just do not cheat or trick someone else because it doubles the pain.

As a friend, I have said my piece. Love is you must. But protect your heart. Do not get hurt. And try not to hurt. I may not agree. But it is not my life. 

This must be the very same reasoning those "friends" had back at my issue. It's double the pain for me. But I love my friend just the same.
