Some people simply enjoy drama.
I’m sure we all know that one person in our lives who always has something going on and thrives on drama. While it is not always their fault, they always find themselves in bad situations and then complain to everyone. And, while a good friend is always available for support, it can become tiresome after hearing the same thing for the umpteenth time. When you offer them a solution, they become even more enraged. After all, they want sympathy rather than a solution.
Michelle appears to fit that description perfectly. Now, I’m not going to say she hasn’t had a difficult life because that would be a lie. However, she is now dragging everyone else into her mess. And, while I feel bad for her, I can see the OP’s point of view. After all, lending your ear to hear the same problem dozens of times can become tiresome, especially if the problem in question has a solution. But all of this is going to sound very confusing right now.
So, to get a better understanding of the issue, scroll down and take a look for yourself.
The title sounds very harsh but this is one interesting story.
But first, we need a lot of background information about the people involved.
The main players are going to be Michelle and Jared, her friend.
Everyone thought they were dating.
But the truth was that she was dating Jared’s brother in reality.
She was also pregnant with Lenny.
As you can expect this forced Michelle and Jared apart.
That is when Michelle’s father passed away and she needed support.
Her husband wasn’t willing to give it so she looked at Jared.
That was when the truth behind everything came out.
This has caused Michelle and Lenny to start fighting.
And since she keeps complaining, OP is also tired of her rants.
I feel bad for Michelle because it wasn’t her fault that Jared liked her and she had no obligation to reciprocate that affection. So I can understand why she would turn to Jared in her time of need, especially since her husband hasn’t listened to her at all. However, now that she knows why Jared stopped being so close to her, he should be allowed to have some space as well. And whatever is going on with her husband is none of his concern. To me, it appears that she requires professional assistance and that ranting about her problems to her cousin repeatedly will not help her.
People in the comments were sympathetic towards OP as well.
Most people agree that Michelle just wants the sympathy.
However, she clearly needs professional help.
