We like to believe that we'll our friends will remain our friends forever, but sometimes, it unfortunately ends.
Below are 26 stories of people who suddenly stopped talking to their best friends, and why. Check them out.
1. I lost my friends when my son died. Instead of being supportive, they harassed me to come out drinking, or go to the bar. Like I had just been through a breakup and needed to go out. No, literally 24 hours ago I buried my baby in the ground.
2. I set a good girl friend up with a close guy friend. Then he started cheating on her, so I told her the truth. When she finally confronted him, his actually replied with:
"Don't listen to her. She's just jealous. Just played matchmaker to get closer to me."
The worst part? She believed him. So did my circle of friends on her side and his side.
I never quite got over that.
3. When I realized the only thing we had in common was the past. That sucked.
4. She had a baby, and then one day we were having lunch and she told me "You know, I only want to hang out with other moms from now on." I didn't quite get the hint, but she ignored all my texts and emails for a few months and I finally realized what she was trying to tell me back there.
5. My best friend ghosted on me. We met in 3rd grade and were thick as thieves until I went to college. While I can recognize I wasn't the greatest friend always, it was 100% her choice to stop being my friend. I admit- it still hurts nearly a decade later. I never got closure, and I doubt I ever will. I'm not sure she has thought out why or would give me the honest truth if I asked. She should have been my maid of honor, and it makes me really sad when I think of that. I try to remind myself that she caused drama for me- she was really passive aggressive and wouldn't talk to me when I did something to bother her. She also never opened up to me about anything bothering her in other aspects of her life. I don't need that back in my life.
But I do miss the great times we had- all the inside jokes, the way we knew what was on each other's minds- we absolutely killed at the game taboo! - and I have never gotten that close with anyone again. But I did read a really beautiful sentiment recently, which I will try to capture here. The people you have in your life grow and occupy space in the tapestry that makes up your life. When they are gone, it makes a hole where they used to be. The memories and love are still there and may always be there. So don't look at your tapestry as filled with holes- look at it as your own unique lace pattern. The pattern isn't over, but it is constantly changing. The pain of loss doesn't ever really go away, but it does lessen over time.
