Episode 4: The Other Kind of Breakup
We’ve all had to endure breakups in one form or another. Have you had to go through the “other” kind of break up, the one with a close friend?
On this episode of Duhmericana, we explore how it’s different to break up with a friend versus a significant other. So much history, so many memories. Sometimes friends slowly phase out from each other’s lives due to time and distance, but the hard ones are when they are the result of two people no longer seeing eye to eye.
Breaking up can be healthy, though. It’s part of the growing-up process. We must come to terms with the absolute fact that people change over time. When you’ve tried your hardest to be a friend but the person is toxic to your life, or when you can’t stand around watching them destroy themselves anymore, or when you realize that maybe YOU are the toxic friend in the relationship, honesty is the best policy.
Have you ever had to break up with a friend? Were you ever the toxic friend and had to cut it for the sake of the other person? Were YOU ever “broken up” with? Let us know in the comments!
