Unhappy How to get over/deal with friend breakups? - August 2nd 2011, 12:03 AM

Well, basically I have broken off my friendships with people I still care about, but cannot possibly still be friends with because they keep hurting me. Now I have NO friends, except an ex-boyfriend. I don't want to get him involved because I'm afraid of hurting him if we get close, but I don't know how to get over this, and I really feel like talking to someone about it. Help? Thanks


Love everyone

I would try to meet other people! Getting your closer to your ex boyfriend may not be a bad idea though, because he is somebody being supportive, but you don't have to be the closest again. But he may be able to introduce you to other people and be able to help you make a new circle of friends. Overall, I would open up!

How do they hurt you?
I can see where your coming from about not having any friends. I choose not to talk to anyone because I don't want to end up with bad friends. But this summer I've learned you can't hide forever. All you need is a little push and you can make friends in no time. If your confident posting this on the world wide web, then maybe you should try to stand out more often. For example if you wear something you like, I'm sure someone will compliment you. Just start a conversation, be nice, and go with the flow.
About your ex, it's not a bad idea to talk to him. I talk to my ex, but when he tries to "go there," I remind him by telling him I broke up with him for a reason. And I'm not doing the same thing twice.
I hope all goes well, and good luck! You can add me if you want
Sincerely, ~mialynn

Aaw, I'm sorry you're going through this.
I think you should go out, and keep busy. Think that, now you've learnt what to watch out for. Do the things you love, that's usually where you'll find your real friends.
Something regular like a drama group, youth club, dance class.. whatever they have in your area, are good for making new friends. Even if you're just talking to people in the park, it's improving your social skills.
Don't worry, you will find good friends who treat you right. And I really admire how you cut them out once you realised they were hurting you.
