It’s not easy to let go of your best friend.
In fact, it may be one of the hardest breakups you’ll ever experience.
I guess because, in a sense, you expect your friend to stand by your side through the good and bad times. Yet, when those bad times have a direct impact on your friendship, things can turn for the worst.
To be clear, I usually talk about relationships between a man and woman. But in many cases, the relationship you have with a friend can be stronger than anything else. So, losing that special relationship can cause you to slip into a pretty traumatic season.
When I first started making YouTube videos, I published a video based on what to do when a friend starts dating and ditches you. To date, this video has the most comments in my entire video collection!
It comes as no surprise either. People are straight-up shook when they have to experience a breakup with their friends.
This sort of thing has been happening to me throughout my entire life! Ever since I was in the first grade, I can remember losing friends who were close to me. Sometimes it was all my fault, other times it wasn’t.
I say all this to say that friend breakups are common and happen more often than you know!
Yet, it’s still never easy to go through! Just read the comments from my video!

While I’ve been losing friends all my life, my most recent breakup with one of my best friends was a very tough one to get through. Mainly, because I never would’ve imagined that things would ever go wrong between us.
Some friends are easy to cut off. You know your worth and you recognize that you were being mistreated. But some cases (like mine), you’re left wondering whether you’re a good enough friend. That breakup left me wondering why, after all the years and moments we’ve been through, she would not want to reconcile.
If you’ve ever experienced a friendship breakup with someone whom you’d considered to be closer than family, then perhaps you felt this way too!
You might be questioning the friendship entirely– was it real? Did they have something against you the whole time? Are you even a good enough person to be someone’s friend?
These questions are all very real and came to mind in my last breakup with a best friend. You see! Getting over a breakup with your best friend is hard! In this video, I talk about three relationship tips on surviving a friendship breakup.

While you may never intend to part ways with a close friend, sometimes it happens. The reason why may never be known for sure– maybe that friendship was only meant to last a season. Perhaps you both are growing (which is a good thing), but the growth is causing you to grow apart! In any case, trusting God through this painful season is something that you MUST do!
In the midst of the breakup, staying close to God will remind you that you are a good person, worthy of friends who see your worth!
If you need help getting over a breakup with your friend, consider setting up a one-on-one coaching session with me!
Always remember that friends will continue to come and go in your life! As these things carry out, stay positive and trust that you are evolving into the person that God wants you to be. And with that come friendships that will keep you growing and well nurtured.
