Losing friends sucks but it is something that everyone has to go through. You might have a few friends who will stick around forever but there will be many people in your life who will come and go. Some will leave happy memories and others won’t.
Here are some reasons some friendships don’t last:
1. You grew apart
It’s natural, not everyone is headed in the same direction. We all have different experiences and different paths to travel. Some friends won’t be coming along for the ride and thats fine. It’s life
Your friend isn’t you highest priority any more. Your time has been taken up by work, or your family, other friends or the cute co worker. Whatever the reason there are other things you need to take care of instead of meeting your friend.
3. People change
After a certain age people change, they aren’t the same fun loving person they were before. They might have had some life changing experiences which changed them and you just don’t get along anymore. Maybe it’s you who’s changed.
4. One of you stopped partying
Maybe your friendship revolved around partying and having a good time and of you can’t party or has stopped partying and hence the friendship is over.
5. Significant other
Your friend got a significant other and is with them 24/7. You don’t like being the third wheel and your friend really likes their significant other. Or maybe the significant other doesn’t like you too much and wants your friend all her/himself.
6. You stopped making an effort
You just stopped calling, messaging or putting in any effort to get in touch with them and they didn’t like that.
7. They are toxic
Toxic friends are those friends who are ALWAYS negative, they have nothing nice to say about any situation even if it’s good. You may have realised that when ever you are around your friend you aren’t happy with them.
8. They moved away
Sometimes distance kills friendships. People moved apart and are busy with their lives in another country. You don’t keep in touch and much and eventually drift apart.
Working can at times take over your life, your new job may become your new life. You may literally have time for nothing else except work. You lose a lot of friends that way.
Misunderstandings happens, sometimes after a misunderstanding both friends forget the matter and other times they don’t. If you lost a friend over a misunderstanding.
