The twist? This same friend had refused to help her years before, blaming her for her own partner's infidelity. 😡 Now, it's time to dive into this tale of friendship, betrayal, and the ultimate question: is it ever okay to refuse help to a friend in need? 🤔

To Help or Not to Help: The Ultimate Dilemma 🤔

This story of friendship and betrayal has us all questioning where we draw the line when it comes to helping friends in need. 😕 While the woman had been there for Amy in numerous ways, she couldn't bring herself to babysit her kids, especially after Amy had once blamed her for her own partner's infidelity. 😡 The two friends exchanged bitter words, leading to a potential end of their friendship. 💔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
