Divorcing Your Friend

By Refadoc, Posted on : Friday, 28 November 2014 - 4:58 am IST

 

These days there are many varied categories of friends – best friends, close friends, casual friends and ex- friends.

The rule of an ideal friendship forever has been replaced by that of marriage forever. And, in most of the cases, this very same ideal turns out to be a major myth. Just as couples break up, it is very common for friends to break up as well. But then how do you dump a friend?

In case you are going through a major betrayal or a rift, being direct yet kind once you decide to end your friendship can prove to be the best way to let go. It is however, important to tell your friend what hurt you and why you feel that it is best to put your friendship on hold.

It is quite cruel to abandon longtime friends without offering any suitable reason behind the dumping. It can be quite easy for some friendships to fizzle out on their own by not returning the calls, avoiding the plans or to cancel them at the very last instance. Most people tend to get a hint with this kind of behavior.

Phasing out the friends who have let you down or those who put you down pays out in the form of other dividends. One of the major benefits of pruning the friendships which are catalytic is that it will save you time and energy in order to invest in more positive and rewarding friendships. If you feel better about your friends, it means that you would feel better about yourself as well!
