Some felt like a huge burden was lifted off my shoulders, others were messy, painful and it took me years to get over them. Some were a strange mixture of both. I had never gone through a friendship breakup before, though. Until now. And it feels strangely similar to my experience with romantic partners.
My feelings generally swing from anger to pain to grief to emptiness. However, I have overcome this in the past. People I loved dearly stopped being a part of my life. The classic one. It was probably meant to be. Some people grow together, with no grudges and lots of forgiveness. Where would you even begin? Both parties feel hurt, misunderstood and disrespected. In that scenario, the relationship is probably bound to end one way or another.
There are way too many forces at play. When this relationship comes to an end, you can safely say that it did happen for a reason. You want to blame everything on them, to paint them in a negative light and yourself as the innocent one. That chapter of your life is closed. That person that meant so much to you and that you could count on is no longer there for you. But there are opportunities arising from this.
A part of the process of healing is to think about your future — where can you go from here? What can you do to become a better person, to surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you, to enjoy your life to the fullest? You can find new friends who will enrich your view of the world and who can maybe be more suitable for you. You can learn a new language. books. Start a business. Focus on your other relationships. Every loss is an opportunity to grow. Think about all the other humans that are still in your life and cherish them.
Practise gratitude. Look forward to the future. Finally, people come, and people go. People grow together, or they grow apart.
The only person you can completely rely on for the rest of your life is you. I never thought I would lose my best friend after ten years of friendship, and here I am. My thoughts always went something like this:. You never know if the relationship is going to work out in the first months or even years. This really makes you put things into perspective.
People change, and you change as well as you get older. Embrace this change. The only person who can define you the best is yourself.
You choose who you become. You choose how you treat others. You choose to forgive, be kind and move on. You are too. Breakups suck. But they also always make us stronger. As time goes by, it will get easier.
As impossible as it might sound right now, you will be happy again. Just give it time. More of my work in P. I Love You:.
