4 Reasons Why Losing Friends Is Not Always A Bad Thing


Inevitably with time, the bond with certain people fade due to a lot of reasons. On both ends, the focus might change, their current choices maybe different, the person’s ideals, values and goals might have evolved.

People seek change because that is how one dynamic individual looks forward to transformation. 

Losing old friends and forming new connections are a part of dynamic evolution that every single individual goes through. It might seem to be a negative experience but in actuality it helps broaden our perspective and the horizon of our knowledge.


3. People Grow Differently

Not to mention, when two people share a positively flourishing relationship, their lives are entangled to each other in various ways. But every person has a unique life experience. 

At some point or the other, even the closest of people, consider sisters and brothers, grow apart. At definite circumstances, their ideals and values might be contradictory to your’s. These opposing ideas might lead to fall outs.

You might have friends who are making your friendship difficult to sustain by taking bad life decisions or involving in activities you don’t want to be personally involved in. However close your friend might be to you, their certain actions can spoil your image and reputation. 

If breaking bonds with these buddies seem impossible, it’s good to consider temporary detachment from them.

Talk out with them about what is bothering you. If they are still inconsiderate of your feelings, you should give them the space to realize your worth.

One’s circle should be small as quality matters over quantity.


4. Friendship often gets toxic

Sometimes your friendship with someone might feel like you are walking on eggshells. With such people around you, you always have to review everything you say, every single way you behave and react. If you are constantly under the fear of ‘your shared secrets’ being exposed you will lose your mental peace. 

The biggest foundation of any connection is trust. If your friendship with someone cannot render you the environment to trust each other, it is not worth your time or efforts.

Does your friend keep away information from you? Do you feel like he/she is not being genuine or whole-hearted with you?

Are you doing your best to sustain the friendship with no or little efforts from the other end?

Reciprocity is one of the significant elements of friendship and if this lacks in your friendship, you can, well, consider it a big red flag. It is better not to pursue such a friend.
