Ending a friendship is one of the most difficult things that you will have to do, but it has to be done. There are times in life when keeping your friend around can do more harm than good. It would be better for both of you to part ways, and focus on finding someone who can truly help you evolve in life. But how can you end a toxic friendship in the easiest way?
Face to face
This is the easiest way, especially if both of you are calm and mature enough to discuss about what went wrong. If your friend is willing to accept your decision and they won't try to change your mind or have an argument, it is preferable to have an honest discussion, face to face. In this way you will have a clean break and you will both be able to say what is in your heart.
Through a letter
There are times when you feel like you can't tell them face to face everything you feel. Also, you may want to avoid discussing with them directly, but at the same time you want them to know what is in your mind. In this case, writing a letter may be the easiest thing to do; it will help you take the things off your heart and it will still maintain the distance between you two.
Ask a friend to have the talk instead of you
Some friendships are more intense than others, and you may reach to a point where you don't want to talk to your friend directly or even through a letter. However, if you still want to let them know that this relationship is over for you and why, you can ask a friend to have the talk instead of you. They are a neutral party, therefore your ex-friend will not have any negative feelings towards them and they will be more willing to listen to your point of view.
Allow it to disappear by itself
If you don't feel comfortable with facing your ex-friend and you don't want to tell them point blank that this friendship needs to end, you can allow it to simply disappear by itself. If you stop contacting your friend, if you stop answering their invitations and you avoid going outside together with the same group of friends, they will get the message and they will move on. You don't have to confront them with your reasons if this makes you uncomfortable.
Leave them a voicemail
Let's say that you want them to know that you are done, but you are not willing to have an entire conversation about this. What is the best way to proceed? Leave them a voicemail. Let them know that unfortunately, you have to go on separate roads. You value your memories together and you will hold a place in your heart for them, but you feel that your relationship is no longer bringing the best in you. Wish them best of luck, and move on to the next chapter of your life.
I know that it can be difficult, but it will be over before you know it. In a matter of weeks you will feel better that you removed this toxic friend from your life, and you will enjoy the beauty of life without any negative influence.
