Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.
Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

She was never there for me, yet she expected me to be her 24/7 therapist. kenna98
Same. Mine ghosted when I got divorced years ago because "she and her husband didn't agree with divorce." Then she got divorced this year and guess who got the constant calls, texts, etc. Lilredh4iredgrl
Are you me? Same exact thing happened with my former BFF. I had major stress going on in my life but she didn't have time, but whenever her (relatively minor) crisis came along I had to drop everything and listen to her b***h and moan. Jobs, men, her family, friends, school, you name it, she had an issue and was always the victim. Nancy_Wheeler
Sorry but that's no friend...
I tried to call my once best friend and admit that I was in an abusive relationship, had just left and that the partner completely cut off all my communications with any friends. I apologized profusely for being such a terrible friend and only talking to her very occasionally for a year.
Her response was that she didn't care about my drama and I should have stayed. After ten years of friendship.
Another girl who I was friends with for the same amount of time I consider my best friend, the three of us were all very close at one point, completely understood and was there for me when this happened. Ironically enough, the other friend pretty much did the same thing to her. Im_A_Girl_Damn_It
