When do I become an enabler if I do nothing when I know the problem exists?

I have an interesting question for your readers I think. I am almost 2 years out of my abusive workplace with a very toxic queen bee, and although I have educated myself and removed 98 percent of the resentments I held, one thing continues to hold me back. A good friend is still in the abusive situation and is just as lost as I was when I left. My question is, I have practiced no contact for 2 years, but when do I become an enabler if I do nothing when I know the problem exists? I am a social worker and have a difficult time not stepping in to help someone being abused. I am sure you can see my conundrum and I am hoping maybe your readers will have some good insight.  Thank you for any help you can provide. 😊

  1. If you step in, you will need to be a rescuer again and again. You can not be a savior. They need to reach a place where they choose their pain. The pain to stay or the pain to leave. We can’t make those choices for them.
