Our expert says:
being caught between friends like this is such a difficult thing, and you are right to try and do the best thing by both of them, beacuse this way you are saying that you are not taking sides.
If you feel that you come under pressure from them to choose, make it clear that you are there for them, but that it is unfair to ask you to choose one friend and dump the other. If you think they are saying things they will later regret it can also be worth pointing this out to them in a way that helps them understand that it is the fact that they are hurt by the situation.
As well as helping the two of them and spending time with them, it is also imporatnt to have time for yourself away from both of them. If you are constantly in this situation it will get too much for you. So make sure you get some 'you' time!
I hope this has been of help. Post another question here if you need to.
