We’ve all been there before.
We have a friend that we care about, and they end up hurting us in some way.
It can be difficult to know how to deal with this situation, especially if you are a Christian.
In this post, we will discuss some of the ways that Christians can deal with friends that hurt them.
I hope that this information will help you to heal the hurt that has been inflicted on you and move forward in your relationship!
Pray for your friend, and ask God to help them see the error of their ways.
You should also pray for yourself, and ask God to give you strength and wisdom in dealing with this situation.
Try to talk to your friend about what happened, and see if they are willing to talk about it.
If they are, then try to work out a solution together.
However, if your friend is not willing to talk about what happened, then you may need to take some time apart from them.
In the meantime, continue praying for them and ask God to work in their life.
2. Talk to a Trusted Friend or Family Member
It can be helpful to talk to someone else about what happened, and get their perspective on the situation.

If you don’t feel comfortable talking to anyone you know, there are many support groups available that can help you deal with your hurt.

Do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself, and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
