When it comes to jealousy or criticism of a friend’s other friends or significant relationships, however, the temptation to share your negative perspective can sometimes be even stronger. Many of us believe that our perspectives are better than those of our friends when we are standing outside their other relationships. But avoid belittling or insulting the “other friends” in your friend’s life. Even when a friend disses another friend in front of you, be discreet in your response. Don’t jump on the bandwagon and say things that could be potentially humiliating if circumstances next week have the three of you sitting at a gathering or event together.
