    Ok so this friend has hurt me a lot, not physically but emotionally.

    The thing is they suffer from depression and have no-one there for them apart from me.

    So do I tell them that they hurt me or not? Like it's not some minor thing either... something that eats the core of me up.

    Please response quickly

    Like should I just somehow manage to let it slide, or is it too big that I should tell them so it doesn't affect my future communication with them?

    Tell them, if your friendship with this person is damaging you emotionally then its a pretty serious thing. Honesty is best here, even if they suffer from depression.

    If they intended to hurt you emotionally then it wont make a difference if you tell them or not. If they were unaware they did the damage then it could take a toll on them, they could start doubting themselves and if they already suffer from depression thats not good.

    I've got my fingers crossed for you Anon
