I had a good reason not to tell my friend I was moving

Dear Amy: I have been friends with “Susan” for over 35 years. I have shared many extremely sensitive and delicate issues with her.

She has taken on the role of giving me a lot of personal advice.

In the past, her advice was helpful, but in recent years it has become more intrusive. A few times I have started a conversation by saying, “I want to tell you about this. No advice is needed, please.”

She listens and then immediately defies my request and insists on giving her advice no matter what.

This situation is causing me a lot of emotional stress.

I bought a new house and for a period of six to seven months I didn’t tell her. Why? Because I wanted to make the big decisions about what house to buy, what neighborhood to live in, etc., and I knew that at some point she would find a way to influence my decision making if I told her.

When I finally told her (after she moved in), she was shocked.

She also gave me legal advice (she’s not a lawyer, but her husband is) that was flat out wrong. When I pointed this out, she brushed it off.

I haven’t spoken to her in over nine months. Why? Because she advised me on an aspect of writing my will that was completely imprecise. I got so annoyed that I felt like I was about to explode inside.

I’ve been so upset that I haven’t completed my will – not even with the help of my lawyer.

I am in my sixties, female and single. My friends are my family.

What should I do?
