I’m going through a break-up with my best friend of four years. We had more in common than any person I have ever met. I’m pretty introverted and don’t make friends very easily—and when I do, I’m really loyal to them. So, to put it lightly, I became quite invested in this friendship and we were inseparable. When she got into a relationship and stopped coming around as much, I didn’t understand and it hurt, because I believe you should always make time for your friends.
