When Friends break your Heart: Coping with the pain of Friendship Loss

When Friends break your Heart: Coping with the pain of Friendship Loss.



When we think of heartbreak, we often think of romantic relationships. But what about the heartbreak that comes from losing a friend? It’s a pain that’s just as real yet often overlooked.


We’ve all experienced it at one point or another: that moment when a friend hurts us or chooses someone else over us. That one important friendship that changes because of long distance, or that one phone call away person who suddenly becomes a stranger. It’s a heartbreak that can be just as painful as any other.


Why is it that we don’t talk about friendship heartbreak more often? Perhaps it’s because we don’t want to admit that our friendships can be just as fragile as our romantic relationships. Or maybe it’s because we’re taught to value romantic relationships more than friendships.

But the truth is, our friendships are just as important as any other relationship in our lives. They’re the people we turn to in times of joy and times of sorrow. They’re the ones who know us best, who have been with us through thick and thin. And when those friendships end, it can feel like we’ve lost a part of ourselves.


So how do we deal with friendship heartbreak? How do we move on when the people we love hurt us?


First, it’s important to acknowledge the pain. Just because it’s a friendship that’s ended doesn’t mean it hurts any less. Allow yourself to feel the sadness, the anger, the disappointment. Don’t try to push those feelings away or pretend they don’t exist.


Second, it’s important to understand that sometimes friendships end for reasons beyond our control. People change, circumstances change, and sometimes those changes mean that our friendships can no longer exist in the same way. It’s okay to mourn the loss of that friendship, but it’s also important to recognize that it’s not always anyone’s fault.


Third, it’s important to take care of yourself. Surround yourself with people who love and support you. Take time to do things that make you happy. Don’t be afraid to seek professional help if you need it.


Finally, it’s important to remember that just because one friendship has ended doesn’t mean that all friendships will end. There are so many amazing people in the world who are just waiting to be your friend. Keep your heart open, and you’ll find those people.



In the words of C.S. Lewis, “Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” While losing that connection with someone is painful, it’s important to remember that the bond you shared was special and that it’s possible to find that kind of connection again.


In conclusion, friendship heartbreak is a real and painful experience that deserves to be acknowledged. It’s important to allow yourself to feel the pain, understand that sometimes friendships end for reasons beyond our control, take care of yourself, and remember that there are so many amazing people in the world who are waiting to be your friend. As the saying goes, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
