Is it wrong to end a friendship simply because you have grown apart from that person?
If you have already grown apart then ending a friendship seems an unnecessary step.
Life makes us and our relationships evolve.
I don't think that "ending" the relationship is necessary. People grow & grow apart. It's natural. Just let it be as it will be, without giving it a permanent end.
Maybe you'll cross paths again one day, or realize that you still have a desire to be a part of that person's life & vice-versa?!.
It's not wrong, no, but unnecessary in my opinion.
Absolutely not!!! People are placed in our lives for certain reasons, some longer than others. We experience good and bad with different relationships, and sometimes people grow apart. It's not a bad thing, just part of the learning process in life.
I agree; a friendship is a gift of life; but... not all gifts are welcome sometimes, especially if it will end up with a freedom tall to be frank or spontaneous or genuine and interest-free. all good implies a price and it's up to us to will to affor
If you out grow any relationship that automatically comes to an end of the closeness and concern involved in the relationship. Friendship is no different in this case also. We always grow no matter what way , as it may be somewhat negative and it may either be positive. But human life is most dynamic in this world. We experience new things every day and which result many changes in attitude and thought process in us. Two individual beings may not grow at par with each other. So it depends on the relationship in question whether they can cope up with the changes and give that much space and emotion to understand the other person.
it' s not wrong neither right. It' s yours as well as their decision to make. People will destroy their friendships for good as well as wrong reasons. Just be sure that the reasons don' t involve what someone else thinks
No it's not wrong to end a frienship that you have outgrown. Some people stay in our lives a long time- as in marriages that last a lifetime. It's just that some times, certain relationships are only mean to last a short time. Sometimes, you just need to move on.
You don't have to "end" a friendship that has grown apart. You do nothing it will naturally die on it's own. One person cannot save a friendship or relationship. All relationships are "at will". The only person you can control is yourself. Some people are in our lives for a season and others remain close to us for our lifetime.
A friend will look out for you and vice versa.
If they are not around it's difficult.
Doesn't mean they're no longer your friend though.
Some good answers here.
No, I've done this throughout my life many times and I'm sure the OP has too. You don't have to "end" the friendship, you just let it go away naturally. You do this when you stop calling the person/hanging out with them on a gradual basis eventually getting to the point where you've lost contact. It happens, nothing is wrong with it. And then I've had times where I have purposely ended friendships but that was because the friendships weren't healthy and I explained this to my friend. They may not have wanted to end the friendship or understood my point of view, but I purposely distanced myself from them and that was that. When you say grow apart from someone are you actually meaning you notice the two of you aren't compatible when you thought you were? Those are two different scenario's. Most people who simply grow apart from a former good friend, gradually loose touch with the person and never truly end the friendship. They just don't keep in touch anymore.
friendship is not just something we engage ourselve into been a friend with someone you both must have know about your like and dislike there must be something that connect both of you, you cant be a friend to someone when you dont have trust in them there are things you should ask yourself before you start building a friendship with someone 1)what am i going to gain from this friendship
2)those he or she has the same interest and opinion as i do
3)can our friendship last?
4)can i trust him/her?
5)can he give me help when i need it?
6)is he/she a good influence in my life?
If your answer is yes to all this question then its wrong to end a friendship because you are both apart from each other no matter how far we are if what we share really means alot and we both trust ourselve then our friendship will keep growing strong no matter the distance.distance is never a barrier its all based on you.
