How To Know When To Take A Break From That Friend

friends fight

How many times have you tried patching up with your friend whenever the two of you have had a fight? And how many times have you realised that you are the only person working towards maintaining your friendship?

Surely, there comes a point of time when you just want to take a backseat and wait for the time when you see your friend working towards the friendship as well.

Here are some reasons why you must rethink about your friendship.

Are you the only person who keeps trying to sustain it?
If you’ve realised that you are the only one who cares about your friendship and have gone out of your way many a times to keep it going, think about it. Friendship, just like any relationship, is a two-way street. If you are working towards it, you would automatically want your friend to work towards it too. And if that doesn’t happen, you would naturally feel upset about it and would step back.

Is it more like a burden now?
When you’ve tried your level best to ensure that your friendship keeps going strong, but haven’t received the same response from your friend, the friendship is bound to feel like a burden than anything else. It’s sad when relationships become a burden, especially a friendship because you have invested a good amount of time and emotions in nurturing it but it hasn’t been able to yield positive response.
