“I recently learned that my good friend Chaya and her husband are having some major financial difficulties. Their home is in foreclosure, and, generally speaking, they are in very bad shape financially…I’ve been avoiding Chaya since I found out these details about her life…because I don’t know what to say—what I’m allowed to talk about and what I shouldn’t talk about… I miss her and want to continue our friendship as before. But I’m thinking that it can’t be the way it was before because so much has changed. We used to go shopping together, and even went on vacations together. At this point, I don’t even know if she can afford to go to lunch with me anymore…I don’t know what the new rules are.”
