After listening to Dear Sugar’s episode entitled When Friendships End I felt a sens of relief to know that I am not alone in feeling broken hearted by failed friendships. Not only am I broken hearted by some of the friendships ending, what makes it even worse that I feel a lack of closure. How do you approach a friend about no longer wanting to be friends? How do you shift a relationship that feels unhealthy and out-of-balance without absolutely burning the bridge or closing the door with that person. How can you both walk away happily knowing that down the road you at least could be friends again?
Not all of my questions were answered, but this got the conversation moving in the right direction for me. Give it a listen if you are struggling with challenging friendships.
