Should I believe them? (TW)Watch
Just because they told you over someone you think they’re ‘closer’ with doesn’t mean that they don’t trust and feel more comfortable telling you. I know it is concerning that there is a possibility they’re lying and especially about something so serious and impactful. Just make sure to be there for them and support them but it’s also good you’re cautious and aware of the fact that this might not be true. If it ever starts to have a serious impact on you and your mental health then it’s important to consider your own feelings as well as theirs because it can become toxic. Keep an eye on the situation but also make sure to prioritise how your friend is feeling and make sure they get help while you’re being weary.
