I simply wasn't happy in the friendship anymore.
Friendships are hard work. You find yourself at times with certain friends going against what you yourself want to do just to keep them happy and to keep the peace.
Friendships are just the same as any relationship. They come to an end if something isn't right. Just know if it does, it's okay, don't beat yourself up over it.
Friendships, like any relationship, should be a two-way street. You are not there to be your friend's doormat. When the venting sessions that friends often have become more often all about them, it's time to move on to new pastures with no time for you.
You are not their puppet and let's be honest. We have enough with our men being assholes to us, without a friend being one too.
Talk with your friend about how you're feeling. If they shrug it off, you know that it's a done deal. There is no friendship!
True friends make time for you. They listen to how shit things are for you and open the second bottle of wine and settle down to set the world to rights with you.
If your friend isn't even prepared to have a girl's night, that isn't all about them, then why bother spending time with them.
Friends are a crucial part of our lives. We grow with them, go through our greatest achievements as well as our all-time lows with them. They're the ones we can sit in a room with and say nothing yet remain close and comfortable with.
If your friend doesn't see or hear your cry for help, whether it is out loud or silent, then they most certainly are not your friend.
We all get to the point where we are no longer happy associating with some friends. It's part of our personal growth. Take time away from them first to see if that helps. If not, then break away for good. You need to do what is right for you.
Some friends are just not meant to stay in our lives, sad but true. Do what is good for your soul. You have a long life to live. Make sure it's a happy one.
