This can present in a number of different ways. Perhaps your friend stops responding to your messages. Or she no longer initiates contact as she used to.
You used to be invited to get-togethers but your friend seems to be excluding you. Or perhaps you forget to invite a friend to an event that you then post all over social media.
Your friend is really excited about a new item that she treated herself to. She shows it to you. She does not ask you what you think about it but you nonetheless point out how it is too expensive and unattractive.
We are all aware of that. Nonetheless, when a friend shares very confidential information, he is trusting you. Keep it to yourself. Otherwise, trust deteriorates and so does your reputation and friendship.
It becomes very tedious to be in conversation with a friend who steals the conversation at every turn. You might be talking about an issue with your child and before you know it, your friend tunes you out and starts talking about her own children.
You may be trying to celebrate a small or even a large success or accomplishment and your friend closes up and becomes unusually quiet. You feel a very real energy shift. Energy shifts are very palpable.
You might be so involved in your own life and forget to follow up on significant events in a friend's life. This can be something joyous, like her recent trip, or critical, like the results of her recent medical diagnostic test.
Sometimes cancellations are inevitable. On the other hand, they may indicate that you found something better to do or that the plan wasn't really ever that important. Be thoughtful.
