Is Our Friendship Over?

Jan 7, 2018 | ASK THG

MARK ASKS,someone upset that their friend is a jerk

My best friend is hanging with a new group of people and now he’s such a F-ing jerk. I told him he was being an ass. He said I’m just boring. We never hang out anymore. Is our friendship over?

Mark

Hey Mark,

Changes can be hard, especially when it’s your friendship. As much as you would like things to stay the same, people change.

What you can’t do:

Make his decisions.
Change who he hangs out with
Change how he acts.

What you can do:

Decide what is right for you.
Talk to him.

It’s time to find out for real if he still wants to be friends. Try having a conversation. Be straight. Ask him if he thinks the friendship is over. Leave out the part about him being an ass (not super helpful).

If he says he doesn’t want to be friends anymore, it might be time to move on. We know it is hard to move on from a friendship, but sometimes it’s the best thing.
You will have many friends in your life. Some stick around and some just come and go.
Either way, you deserve a great friend. If it’s not meant to be him, it will be someone else. A friendship takes two people willing to make an effort.

hope, porcupines, and lots of love,
