Anyone else deal with anxiety/trauma due to friendship breakups?? I’m extremely stuck on one that ended 7 years ago, but it hurt me so deeply and i can’t seem to move past it. Any advice??
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I am going through the same. It was a one sided friendship but when I cut it off, it cut deep. I'm still mourning that loss and it was in 2020. I try to keep my mind busy to help
same thing happened to me in 2015. Why does it hurt so bad when im the one that cut it off 😣
I agree. It shouldn't hurt this bad. But it does. It's a loss no matter how good or bad the relationship. *hugs*
I’m going through the same thing. My friends keep leaving me without saying why and I used to have 10 friends and now I have only 3
I went though the same thing with a girl i even cut her name into my rib cage. I attempted suicide cause of her and voices too but mostly her mind games and now shes marry and has a kid. I still have a hard time but i am trying to move past it. Its hard
Maybe try keeping a journal or notebook, I am stuck on a past relationship aswell and it truly does hurt but venting and writing down everything almost opens my soul up.
Ive lost friends over time. It’s not easy and it’s especially not easy to forget. If you can, try to reach out but if you know in your heart you can’t, it’s time to heal! It’s time to give yourself a break and forgive your former self.
me! it happened in high school and it sucks to say i'm still feeling it. i am terrified that my friendships and relationships are going to end at the slightest problem or inconvenience and it's led me down a path of very self destructive tendencies in attempt to keep everything perfect for everyone (except for myself of course). for me i wrote letters to them and then burned them, it gave me some type of closure which has helped me a little bit.
For sure. I had a friend that was emotionally manipulative and abusive. But we still made good memories together, that's what hurts now. I'm working with my therapist on this.
I've been waiting for so long to hear that there are people with this same trama. I have reached out and gained little to no closure, it hurts everytime I see her name. I have tried my best to limit how much content I see online about her so that I can try better to forget. Filling my life with things that aren't her hoping they will push her out.
Friends are there for months, or years or not..u will have new friends..we are on a journey
Yes!! I just recently lost a friendship I thought was pretty solid and it hurts so bad. I try to think about how while it does hurt, it’s better to lose that part of your life rather than let it drag you down for longer.
I had a friend that made me happy every morning then I took a candid photo n posted on my fb..she thought it was disrespectful n cut the friendship off. I then realized she, transgender, was insecure with her looks..n she wasn't someone I needed in my life..yes it hurt but she was there only for the time. Every person n situation is 4 our learning I read.
I am totally with you! What I’ve been doing is writing notes (that I will intentionally NEVER send) as I progress through my journey. I basically state anything I’m feeling and why I believe I’m feeling that way. I honestly wrote one about the friendship breakup and said that I forgive them in the end of the letter. Now that didn’t make me forgive them but it really opened up my heart to heal more.
I cannot express how much I deal with that too! Uggg it’s so hard! It truly makes new friendships hard in my case cause I’m traumatized and simultaneously afraid to open up but also afraid to let anyone go. It’s so hard!
ever hear of rewrite the narrative?
Same, i got seriously depressed at the end of uni because I knew not all of my friendships would last. And it sucks to say but I'm still extremely hurt by my HS bf who dumped me over six years ago
have a goal u will have new friends who need u..be the best friend for that person
