Point out reasons for breaking up friendship
Assess all the reasons for which you wish to terminate the friendship that you have shared for several years with your friend. Try to think of things about your friend’s behavior or personality that constantly hurt or irritate you. Find out if those reasons could be ignored or bad behavioral approach of your friend affecting your friendship could be changed in a positive way. If the answer to this is no then it is best to move away from your friend.
Trust lost in your friend
Trust is the basis of friendship and if you find this fundamental factor lacking in friendship then it is best to call it quits. You should no longer remain under an obligation to maintain friendship if you cannot trust your friend with your secrets. When you break up with your friend, elaborate on the reasons for which there is no trust in your relationship.
Confront your friend and talk honestly
If there have been problems in your relationship since quite some time and carrying on the bond of friendship has become tough then it is best to talk it out with your friend. Putting off the decision to confront your friend over termination of the relationship might not be a good solution. It might be difficult to initiate a conversation but a discussion is necessary to help you break free from a friendship that has turned into more of a burden.
Try making the breakup smooth
Remember that the person with whom you are trying to break your bond of friendship was once close to your heart and keeping this in mind, avoid saying hurtful or negative remarks to end the relation. Let the breakup happen smoothly without either of you placing the blame for not letting the friendship last long. Avoid attacking your friend personally to ensure that end of the relationship does not happen in a bitter way. Avoid picking up a fight or entering into unnecessary arguments to end the relationship. Strong negative words or bitter actions will only cause more hurt and pain to the person who was once your good friend.
Be firm about your decision
Once you have taken the stand to break up with your friend, convey it in a polite manner. If your friend shows repentance for the behavior and expresses sincerity to change it but you are not willing to give a second chance then speak out your decision firmly.
