Shall I tell her what I really think?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I have a friend who is obssessed with the fact that she's destined to be in the Media or Show business and thinks that instead of doing hard work to get there (ie starting at the bottom) she'll be spotted and put on TV. She says she'll do anything and thinks she'd be great at anything from being a director to reading the weather.

At the moment she has a job working with kids with special needs but has had loads of different badly paid jobs with no prospects and spends her whole life moaning about people on the TV and saying 'I could do that - why are they doing it, they're crap'.

Because I work in a media environment she hassles me for inside info on how to get a job and I do pass application forms on etc but she makes no effore to send them back or call the numbers I give her.

Quite frankly I am getting really fed up with it because She contantly moans about how unfair things are.

Should I tell her the truth i.e that she needs to get off her arse and do something about it? She's 26 and should be shifting her arse if she actually want's to achieve something.

We've been friends for 8 years so we know eachother well and should be able to speak freely but I'm scared I'll piss her off.

    I wouldnt quite put it as telling her to get off her fat arse, but, yeah, thats the sentiments you need to be giving her <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0"> Just be nice about it.

    Say to her that u dont mean it in a bitchy way, and explain basically wot u have done on here.
    You could say that u r going to pass on numbers one more time and if she doesnt ring them, then that is the last time. <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0">

    maybe she is less confident than she makes out and she wants to pursue this route but when given the chance she clams up? i dont know, question her first and then if she has no reason to why she is behaving this way, tell her to shift her arse!!!!!!
