What To Do When Your Friend Makes Unhealthy Choices

hey there

So, your friend is dating a less than ideal guy. Their communication isn’t great. And the relationship is quickly turning toxic.

What’s a girl to do?

Have you ever been there? Feeling a bit helpless on the sidelines? While trying to decide if and when to intervene in love?

Sister, I’ve been there. And truthfully, I’ve been on both sides of this situation. The one trying to help and the one in need of some help.

Whether you have a friend in a bad relationship, a family member making poor decisions, or a loved one in situations that aren’t good for her – this episode is here to help.

In this Ask J series, listen in for my suggestions to the question, ‘What do you do if a friend is in a toxic relationship?’ You’ll learn my top tips on when to speak up, when to simply listen, and how to navigate the balance of both.

It’s never easy to confront a hard situation but asking yourself a few litmus test questions of your own motives and respecting the boundaries of others, you’ll be equipped to gracefully work through the conversation.

And I want to leave you with this little reminder:

It’s your job to love, not to be the hero.

Sister, ask questions, give her a vision of a healthy reality, listen intently, and love her well – that’s all any of us can ask.

Hi, I'm Jordan.
& I'm glad you're here.

I have a huge heart for helping other mamas (and future mamas to-be) naturally support their body, embrace their femininity, and make healthy swaps for their families in a way that works for them and glorifies God (zero perfection required)

My days are spent writing books, hosting the SHE podcast, sharing product recommendations, and creating resources rooted in biblical values to help you do just that.
