Friendships are one of the strongest bonds known to mankind. Very often, we think that most, if not all of our friendships will last a lifetime. You spend your days making promises to stay by each other’s side and brave through the shitty obstacles of life together.
Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Much like a relationship, once a friendship has run its course – you will notice the signs of a possible break up on the horizon. Scary, isn’t it? If you’ve never been through a friendship break up, let me tell you – it’s worse than a relationship break up.
Your best friend is someone you confide to and share your hopes and dreams with. You understand the flaws in each other and you accept them instead of shunning them away. To some, a best friend is their other half. I know a particular person came to mind when you read those sentences – now imagine life without them.
The best thing about knowing the signs is you can prevent this friendship break up before it even happens. Looking out for the signs will curb the decision making process and you can work things out with your bestie. Now while we do say this, keep in mind that all friendships are different therefore if the friendship is meant to end then it will end.
Here are some signs that will creep up:
1. She stopped asking you about your life
This is the first sign to look out for. She has stopped asking you how are things, how work is coming along and how your love life has been treating you. Any normal bestie will know this at the back of her hand but if you’re both busy building your futures then the least she can do is ask you how you’re doing once in a while.
Ask yourself this: when was the last time she asked you how things were?
