Ending friendship

Breaking up with a friend can be difficult, but sometimes it's necessary. Just as love relationships end, sometimes friendships end too.

There are many reasons

There are several reasons why friendships end. For example, you may be really close to a friend for a while and then drift apart. It could be that you and your friend have different interests and don't have as much in common anymore.

Sometimes you may have fought a lot and realised that the relationship is not good for either of you anymore. It's also common to spend less time with friends if you get together with a partner. If you want to break up with a friend, it might be a good idea to try to talk to the person about how you feel. Sometimes people drift apart and stop talking anyway.

As friends, if you feel that you have drifted apart and have different interests, both of you usually try to find new friendships. But if only one of you feels this way, the other may feel abandoned, betrayed and sad. Even the person who wanted to end the friendship may feel guilty.

It can be hard when this happens, but it's also common for people to find new friends or reconnect after a while.

Finding a best friend or a group of friends can be difficult and sometimes time-consuming. Some people have the same friend for years or their whole life, but it is common to have different friends at different times in life.
