It’s all smiles and sunshine the moment your Best Friend (BFF) finds a companion, you couldn’t be happier for her but little did you know this would cause a shift in the flow of your friendship together. You used to do everything together, for years you two were glued by the hip. Everyone knew you two came as a package, it was the perfect friendship.
The moment she enters a relationship, suddenly she becomes less available to you, no longer open to doing things together. It’s almost as if you just got replaced or acted as a filler until this new male figure came into the picture (to a certain extent of course) but why? You give it a chance and try to hang out as a trio but can’t find yourself getting along with the guy OR can’t stand another second of the constant PDA (public-display-of-affection).
Well open your eyes, things aren’t what they used to be. Things change, people outgrow friendships and end up becoming distant. You become disappointed with this outcome and begin to contemplate random thoughts to yourself. Is it safe at this point to question the loyalty of the friendship or was it all fabricated to begin with? Will things go back to the way they were in the event they were to break up? Are you being selfish and not seeing things in a better light?
In any case, you two are besties for life, right? Speak your thoughts and be completely transparent with each other through these minor obstacles. As Shakespeare once said:
“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”
We all miss our Best Friend, you’re not alone.
