Dear Vee, Is there a line between helping a friend and being nosey?

This is a tough one because if you see a friend dealing with something you know you can help with, you automatically want to help them. However, when someone is ready to open up about what they are dealing with they will.

Whenever a situation becomes unbearable for a person they will let you know and ask for advice. The only time I believe being nosey is acceptable is when you know a friend is being harmed in any kind of way. If the person you know is putting their life in danger, I believe that line can be crossed because you can’t just let the situation go unnoticed.

So in conclusion, if your friend wants your advice, they will ask. If they are putting themselves in harm’s way and may just be afraid to open up, talk to them calmly and tell them you are there if they need you.
