Breaking up is hard to do, especially when it comes to friendships. Relationship expert, Sam Owen, gives us her advice on how to know you should end a friendship and how to go about it in a healthy, drama-free way.
Change is an inevitable part of life. As we evolve and grow everything, from our passions and tastes to our jobs and romantic relationshipstransform in myriad ways.
One of the inevitable casualties of change can be our friendships. For many of us, anxiety around our friendships has heightened during the pandemic.
Our bodily sensations can give us a real insight into how we feel about somebody. Research has found we make decisions in our subconscious mind first and in our conscious mind later, Sam explains.
Without being able to meet up and socialise properly, many people have felt lockdown has shifted the foundations of their friendships. But how do you recognise if a friendship has changed unequivocally, or if it can return to normal as the world reopens again?
This can give you time to ruminate on the relationship and see what it feels like to not have the person so intensely in your life. You might want to meet up again in the future to see if you can salvage things. Be clear about what you want to say to the person before you approach them so you can deliver it in a calm and confident way, Sam advises.
Breaking up with a friend can be extremely difficult and upsetting. Afterwards, Sam advises spending time with people who are good for your health and happiness.
Spend time exercising or in nature. Both can soothe anxiety symptoms and ease depression. Sam Owen is a leading relationship and life coach.
