Breaking Up is Hard to Do, Again

Dear Lisa,

There are always signs, but we seem to see them only in hindsight. Why is that?

Breaking up is hard to do, I agree, and just as with romantic relationships the break-up can sting.

A friendship in a downward spiral can be as difficult to deal with as a cheating boyfriend.

When the relationship is on a downhill slide, your sense of self will suffer at that hands of a gossiping, disloyal friend.

I am sorry to hear that you are going through this.
