HomeFriends Relationship QuestionsHow to cope with friendship betrayal?
Roy Murray asked 5 months ago
Jaime and I have been friends for 4 years. She lived nearby in the neighborhood but she moved out 2 weeks ago. We used to see each other almost every day, either going to school together or just hanging out. But since she moved away, I feel so betrayed and abandoned. I miss her so much.

It's normal to feel betrayed and abandoned after your friend moves away. It can be tough to cope with the change, but there are a few things you can do to make it easier. First, try to stay in touch with your friend. Send each other texts, Snapchat messages, or emails. Video chat if you can. If you live close enough, plan to visit each other. Secondly, look for other friends who live near you. Spending time with them can help take away the sting of your friend moving away. Finally, remember that things change and people move. It's okay to be sad, but try to focus on the good memories you have with your friend. cherish those and know that you can make new ones in the future.
