Need suggestions with a friend
I lurk here often but I have not posted. I am asking for your help with a friend of mine that I meet once a week for lunch. She always seems to be saying negative about my hair or my make up and I just do not know what to do about it. I don't want to lose her as a friend, but these meeting are becoming hurtful to me.
I am the complete opposite of my friend with makeup and hair. She is completely gray and does not wear makeup....not even lipstick and she thinks that it is about time I let myself go since I am 63 to her 60. It is just not me to go into town "naked" and feel well groomed and feeling good about myself. My makeup (Bare Minerals) is low key and my hair color is soft and natural looking and colored by a professional, and I am comfortable with my look. I usually get compliments on my appearance which is very flattering to me from other friends.
What would you do or say in a situation like this.
