What To Do When Your BFF Finds Herself A New BFF

You sit on your couch alone on a weekend, bored as hell, when you're used to spending the day with your BFF. Just a few days or weeks ago, you and your soul sister were making endless plans to chill. Now, she's completely ignoring you for someone else, who looks like she might be your replacement. To make matters worse, you find this new friend of hers is unbearable.

Losing your best friend because of an ugly fight is bad, but it's worse when you lose her because she's found a new BFF. See, it happens. There are times you and your best of friend grow apart over time, and then there's that loneliness and the fear of being replaced in the back of your mind. We've got a few ways for you to deal with this situation in a mature way, which won't cost you your precious friendship.

Don't jump to conclusions and feel betrayed instantly

They may have a valid reason for their behaviour. So, before jumping to conclusions, first, take a moment and analyse the entire situation and figure out what made her take that step. You may discover that it wasn't her fault, that it was yours. Once you know what happened, make an effort to fix it.

What To Do When Your BFF

Watch your behaviour and actions

Like we mentioned earlier, don't jump the gun; keep your overflowing emotions in check.
Jealousy is a natural emotion to feel, but you must remember that your friend may not even realise what she's doing to you. Moreover, if you behave badly around her new buddy, the only thing you'll do is drive your friend further away from you.

Talk it out

Don't bottle up your feelings and stress yourself out. The best idea is to always sit down and talk it out. The longer you hold it within you, the more your thoughts will fester. And there's nothing wrong in expressing what you feel to a person who's been there for you all the time. Even if there's a distance between you now, remember, you were the best of friends. Have a chat and talk about your emotions, without making it seem like you're blaming your friend or her new BFF.

DON'T discuss it with anyone else

Involving a third person between the two of you can only make matters worse. There are chances this move can prove damaging to your relationship with your BFF. However, if there's another close friend, who you believe won't let on your emotions in public, vent to him or her. BUT, we repeat, only if you can trust them with all your heart. There's no point in running around with your anger on display.

Distract yourself and make new friends

Catch up with the other friends in the group or just keep yourself busy with an activity that you love. It'll be a great distraction from the entire issue and you'll get some much-needed peace of mind.

Lastly, be patient

When you've made all the effort to mend the relationship but nothing's worked, then it's best to be patient. Not all new friendships go the distance. Maybe, at some point, they'll want to come back. Maybe you'll find another BFF. Only time will tell.
