Issue: A friend of mine made a commitment to me and then did not follow through with the commitment. How do I confront them and still maintain the friendship?
Insight: Friendship is not always easy, but the friendships worth keeping are the ones that can weather any storm.
When a friend makes a commitment, it is usually because they intend to keep it. If they have not kept it, there may be a good reason why they were not able to.
If you feel like it is a commitment that needs to be kept, then it may be a good idea to confront them. When you confront them, do so out of love not anger and you will find that the response will be much more positive. Also, try not to accuse, if you want answers as to why they did not follow through then ask questions.
Lastly, let them know that you want to maintain the friendship and what your expectations are in order for that to be accomplished.
