How We Navigate Through Friendship Breakups

Let’s talk about something we all have probably gone through – friendship breakups. When a friendship ends, it can feel like a mini heartbreak. It hurts, physically sometimes too. You may feel different emotions all at once,  from confusion and anger to sadness and regret. Believe us when we say, we know the struggle.

We think it’s important to remember that these feelings are very natural, they’re simply part of life and it’s okay to acknowledge them. However, eventually we’d all have to move on. And to us,  moving forward is accepting what you feel. Don’t beat yourself up or ignore your feelings because you’ll be surprised how much you understand your emotions better, when the process of healing is done. 

We also think journaling can be very therapeutic during these tough times. We want to write down our thoughts and feelings. Put them into words, and somehow it provides you clarity and gives you a different perspective. You know by now that we journal about everything and this is because it helps us process those “complicated” emotions and can be a way of reaching a sense of closure. 

We also believe that reaching out to your other friends, family, or a trusted confidant can also help ease the pain. Sometimes, we just need to have a conversation about the friendship breakups just like we would talk about a romantic one. Even though some of us might have the fear of oversharing, please don’t shy away from leaning on the support system you have around you. Trust us, unpacking your feelings to someone can help in ways you can’t even imagine. 

And in all this, you need to take  good care of yourself during this phase. Self-care is essential. Do things that you love, that spark joy in your heart and soothe your mind. Now more than ever, you need to keep yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally well. After all, healing is all about nurturing oneself, right?

Finally, let’s use this time to reflect. Look back at the friendship, not with regret, but with understanding. We can analyze what we’ve learnt from this friendship and how it has shaped us as a person. Every experience, good or bad, contributes to your personal growth. So remember, you are not at a loss here. Instead, you have stepped up  in your journey of self-growth.

Also please keep in mind that it’s okay to have rough patches, to have misunderstandings, and even breakups. Embrace it, learn from it and continue being the best version of yourself. We believe in you!
