People grow and people change — it’s a natural part of life. That's why there's a lot of ex-friend quotes out there that people can relate to.
Friends move away, you go off to college, get married, have kids — anything can be the tipping point for a lost friendship.
Even ending a friendship naturally and just growing apart can feel super crappy when you’re feeling nostalgic and remembering the good times. You should say to your ex-best friend that you know in your heart it’s best that you guys ended up going your separate ways, even though you might miss the way things used to be.
No one goes through life without losing friends and making a few ex-besties. But don’t sweat it — when one person walks out of your life, another one walks in.
No matter how you lost your best friend or in what way, I guarantee you’ll relate to more than a few of these quotes about ex-friends.
