“No matter what the reason, we all know what its like to lose a friend and it sucks. Its kinda like a break up where you have this period of being just sad and you wanna call them, and you wanna know where it went wrong and you’re mourning, you’re moping, until finally one day, you wish them well and you move on with your life.
The first step is to self reflect,and to try to find something that you learn from the friendship. There’s something about mentally learning something from an experience makes it feels whole and complete and in essence, finished
Second, don’t let this experience deter you from emotionally engaging other people. Don’t let one experience with someone completely change how you interact with other people
And finally, let yourself feels the feeling. There’s so many times when the past comes up, and we just wanna push it away. Or our first instinct is to be like “Oh don’t think about that” but its important to give yourself permission. So if you miss someone, let yourself just miss them and be like, you know what? That’s fine, I really miss that person in this moment, but its over for a reason and let yourself sit with that for as long as you need to sit with that
Ultimately, we all are going to lose a lot of friends in our life. But we also gonna gain a lot of friends and a lot of experiences.”
