How to end a friendship

By   

Friendship sometimes becomes obsolete and only causes suffering. How to stop being friends with someone without experiencing remorse because of this.

  1. What is the reason for your distance from a friend? If the matter is a simple quarrel or misunderstanding, talk and try to make peace. Friends are people very close to us, they know more about the rest of us about our inner world, so it’s easier for them to hurt us. Before you finally break off relations, try to resolve the situation peacefully and strengthen your existing friendship

  2. Are you and little friends already unifying? In this case, first try to find new points of contact. You used to play football, but now your hobbies are different? Look for other common interests that will become the basis for a new round of your friendship.

  3. If you still want to end your relationship with a friend, gradually reduce communication. Call less, respond slowly to messages. Refuse meetings, filling life with other activities. You can sharply break off relations only if the other person has offended you very much and hurt you. If the relationship has simply become obsolete, then out of respect for the past, move away from your friend gradually, so you will hurt him less.

  4. Stop sharing your innermost thoughts and feelings, talk more about some external situations

  5. In some cases, a frank conversation is necessary, because it is important for a person to understand what is happening. Do not break friendship through social networks. Take your time and gently but confidently say that friendship has begun to bring you a lot of negative emotions and you want to stop it. Give a friend the opportunity to express their own thoughts and feelings, to respond to your decision.

  6. Do not speak badly in the presence of third parties about a former friend. Even if a friend or girlfriend stigmatizes you in the circle of mutual acquaintances, do not stoop to the same level

  7. Do not reproach yourself and do not consider a bad person because of the unwillingness to communicate. This is your Life! If you are bored or unpleasant in the company of any of your friends, it is quite normal to say goodbye to him.
