If you're contemplating breaking away from a friend, who hasn't don't justice to your friendship, then relationship expert, Stacy Kaiser might be of some help to you, as she has given some valuable tips on how to know whether a friendship is just going through a rocky phase or it’s time to throw in the towel.
According to Stacy, the author of ‘How to Be a Grownup’, it’s actually quite easy to determine whether a friendship is worth fighting for or not.
Kaiser says that there are three easy signs to know it’s time to break up, the Huffington Post reported:
Firstly, you get very little, or nothing, back or nothing for what you give and it’s very one-sided.
Secondly, you spend too much time gossiping about her. If she’s the topic of conversation on a regular basis and has you so frustrated that you can’t even think straight, that’s a big red flag.
Thirdly, you’ve already gone a round or two and forgiven her in the past, but there comes a point when you realize it’s a pattern and it’s not going to change.
And, if you have finally decided that now that the breakup has to happen and wondering how do you do it, then here's your answer- when your relationship has run out of its course, the only thing left is to be honest, kind and respectful to the person who has been a friend to you.
