I recently published a post about knowing the correct time to ‘breakup with your friend‘ and decided to write about how to get over splitting up with your friend. It’s not easy to get over any type of breakup. We all experience heartache whether it’s love or friendship. We all get over things in different ways.
Treat It Like A Romance
We have all (well most of us) experienced heartache and a difficult breakup. So why should a friendship breakup be any different? You have probably know your friend longer than you knew your ex so it will probably take longer to get over a friendship breakup. Just like you would a romantic breakup, spend your day in bed watching sad films and eating your body weight in ice cream. Once you are past the depressing stage you need to do what everyone else does. Dress yourself up and go out!
See Your Other Friends
So your past the depressing stage and ready to dress up and go out. Just because you have lost one friend it doesn’t mean you lose them all. Your toxic friend is out of your live and you have kept the positive ones. Get those friends together and plan something YOU want to do. You used to dread your plans with your old friend but that has now changed. You can plan do what you please with support of others. So dress yourself up or get those friends round for a takeaway and enjoy yourself!
Time To Be Selfish
It’s time to stop feeling guilty and time to put yourself first. A lot of the time you do things to make others happy. Well at least you had to with your old friend but now it’s time to be a little selfish. Do what you want to do. Plan was you want to plan. Dress how you want to dress. It’s time to put yourself down and stop doing things just to please others. Getting rid of the toxic in your life should leave you with the support you need and deserve. People who won’t judge you and will support you when you need it.
Find The Positive
Just like everything else in life it is time to find the silver lining. Think about the reasons why you took this person out of your life. This will help you to grow the way you deserve. It is time to become proud of yourself for taking away this toxic instead of feeling guilty about it. The guilt will slowly fade away but remember that you have done what is best for you and you have helped yourself to become a better person.
