I have been thinking alot about this topic lately. Especially after losing a friendship. I question myself if I was long suffering enough in this relationship. There were times I wasn’t patient enough with my friend.
But sometimes we can be long suffering in some relationships where the person can start take advantage of it and start using the other person.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall
Proverbs 18:12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
Sometimes we can learn a lot through a friendship. When you entangle yourself in a friendship that becomes broken because of a narcissistic personality. I didn’t realize how narcissistic this person is until a few years go. But I realize now that we really didn’t have a friendship. These two verses explains the narcissist perfectly. But someday she will realize she has lost a good friend. I don’t plan to pick this friendship back up
