BFFs No More: Understanding The End Of A Long Friendship

October 3, 2012  |  


From Hello Beautiful

Recently, I had to come to grips with the fact that the once 13-year friendship/sisterhood between a childhood friend and me is no longer existent. There’s a bitter tension stemming from only God knows where and why. I first noticed the separation when we went to different colleges.

Admittedly, I was one busy bee in undergrad. In addition to all the step shows, Greek parties and games that come along with HBCU life, I also had an internship every year, worked a part-time job, was initiated into my Sorority and senior year I reigned as the University queen. My days were full and it definitely took away from the time that I could chat for hours with old friends. But like all of my other friends, who too were in college, I just expected her to understand undergrad life. Whenever we did get around to conversing, I thought we’d be able to just pick up where we left off, like close girlfriends do. And for a while we did, but not for long.

    I’ve been in this situation before in my life and it was very painful. Unfortunatly just like with any other relationship best friends can grow apart.Your life has gone in a different direction and your friend is jealous. She wants your attention like it used to be and things have changed.If her life is not what she wants it to be its probably hard for her to be happy and proud of you.Sadly these things happen because we all have to grow, but your better off without the negativity in the long run.Pray for her and wish her well and keep it moving.
