It’s normal for people to change, but if someone changes so much that it affects your relationship, you may need to talk to them about it. It is best to take a direct approach, so ask your friend if something is wrong. People change for many reasons, but they can also change if they are going through something difficult. If you still want to be friends, tell them that you miss spending time with them. You could say something like, “I really liked spending time together, but you’ve been too busy lately.” If spending one-on-one time feels uncomfortable, try hanging out in a group at first. However, if this friend has gotten worse or is making you feel bad about yourself, you may need to leave the friendship. To avoid any discomfort, slowly move away from them. Only make excuses when you are asked out and use that time to strengthen your other friendships. To find out how to help your friend who is going through a difficult time, read on.
