Hey PI girls! I need some help. My freshman and sophomore year I got super close with a friend and I was so excited to finally have a best friend who had the same beliefs and values I did and who was always there when I needed it. Last may for my birthday her and I and our two other good friends went to Disneyland for my birthday and that was so much fun but after that my best friend was leaving for the whole summer out of the country with spotty Internet so we weren’t able to talk much which was really hard. That summer I was able to go with my church to Africa on a mission trip and it was amazing. That was right before school started so I was going to be able to see and talk to my best friend after 2 months I was so excited to share about my trip with her but every time I would try to talk to her about it she would blow me off. That hurt a lot. After that we were fighting a lot and it got to a point where I couldn’t talk to her anymore cause it hurt so much. Well lately I’ve been feeling like I need to reach out again but when I think about that it’s almost as if God shuts it down but it feels like he is the one telling me to reach out so I’m very conflicted. Does anyone have any thoughts?

First off, I’m so sorry this happened. Friends are so important, and when there is trouble with them it can effect everything else in your life too. My advice, though generic, is something I use any time I have a problem, PRAY. Pray for God to give you an opportunity to talk to her. If that is what He wants you to do then he will make a way for it to happen.

Listen girl, I have gone through the SAME thing!!!! My very best friend Mac (who is a girl) and i have been growing apart lately. And we have been friends for 12 years now. It was really hard for me at first because she was like my sister. Nobody could ever replace her. In your case, i would goto your friend and ask her whats going on. She may be really struggling with something right now and need a friend, or maybe she has changed, like people tend to do. My friend changed and i just had to learn to go with the flow and make new friends. And TRUST me i know how hard that can be. Im about as social as a dead person:) but that just the way life goes. And God will put new people in our lives that will help us grow in ways that we never imagined. I hop this helped you:) God bless.

I completely agree with what megg0 and Hannah said…growing apart from friends is very tough. it happens to all of us, however in this case it doesn’t seem like you two just grew apart…how your putting it is she seems to be mad about something. my advice would be to pray about it then reach out if you feel like its the right thing to do. friendship shouldn’t end on bad terms. if she needs space then give that to her but let her know you want to work it out. good luck and keep us updated!
