Losing a Best Friend...

When losing a best friend, it can be one of the hardest things you have to go through. You've gone from telling each other everything to not speaking at all.  This is what has recently happened to me. so I've decided to speak about it to see if you guys have ever had that happened to you. Sometimes you go through life and constantly have your friends changing but what if that one friend that you were friends for AGES suddenly isn't there anymore. I always thought that it was a problem to loose your best friend but sometimes you have to realise that you are constantly changing as a person and they are too so you don't have much in common anymore and that's okay.
 
 
 
 
What should I do if I lose a best friend...
 
- If your friend wants nothing to do with you anymore, accept there is a reason.
 
- Even If you are no longer friends, always remember the great times you had.
 
- People do change.
 
-Peoples lives change.
 
- Do things to take your mind of it.
 
- If they don't want to be your friend anymore, it's their loss and you shouldn't be your problem. It's theirs.
 
- Get to know some of your current friends better.
 
-If they move away try to keep in touch.
 
- If you do lose a best friend, you can always make a new one.
 
- if they don't want to put the effort into being your friend, you shouldn't care more than they do.
 
-If you lost a friend over a fight, like from telling them how you feel, and they won't forgive you, it's their loss.
 
- Forgive yourself.
 
-Move on to bigger and better things.
 
- Try and find someone to talk to about it.
 
 
Have you ever lost a best friend? how did you feel? do you wish you saved the friendship or were you glad it ended?
 
lots of love

  1. I recently lost a friend and it was hard at first. I wrote to her to tell her why I could no longer be her friend (basically I couldn't stand by her life choices when her partner of many years cheated on her and continues to do so to this day!) Some may think that I was harsh to do what I did but if we were still friends I wouldn't be a very good one because I don't respect her decision. I guess losing respect for someone is harsh but it happens to us all. It was very hard and I think of her a lot and I hope that she will one day find happiness and strength to move on with her own life.

    I'm sure some people will read that and think "wow, she left her friend when she needed her most!" and you could be right, but it's more complex than that and it was having a massive impact on my own wellbeing. I ended up being assaulted in a bid to protect her and I had no choice but to walk away.

    Anyone got the number for Jeremy Kyle...?! :-(

  3. We've had our fair share! Sometimes life leads you down different paths which is when you realise who you true friends are. Lucky for us, we have each other!

  5. Lost a best friend a couple of years...it was one of the most painful things I've ever gone through. It has been hard to have the same friendship with anyone else. I miss the old her.
