If the transgressor continues with the unfortunate act, then it is up to the friend to evaluate the basis of the friend relationship and decide whether the action is forgivable or not within their personal limits. Basically, it is up to someone whether or not to put up with someone else's behaviour. Now, if this was putting someone in harm's way, there always is an authority to turn to.
Yeah I agree. There is definitely no abuse. She just simply admits to doing things that are wrong. I never ask about them, she just comes out and admits it.
