Uteruses before Duderuses… remember that!
So, your best friend’s got a new boyfriend, and it’s kind of wearing on your ego. I TOTALLY get it, it happens to the best of us.
When your BFF suddenly has someone ELSE to spend all their time with, you kind of feel like you’ve been put on the back burner. It sucks! No one wants to feel like they are losing a best friend.
You want to be happy for her, of course, but there’s that looming feeling that you will never compare to the closeness of her new relationship, and you find yourself feeling super resentful.
It can be SO easy to slip into being bitter about your BFF’s new love, but it will be so much better for your friendship if you show support for her new relationship.
She’s happy and that’s what’s most important, so don’t let it be about you! BUT, while being super supportive of her new boo, you can also remind her exactly why you two are BEST friends.
There’s no harm in a little reminder of all the times you’ve held her hair back while she was sick after a FEW too many drinks, or all the times you’ve been the shoulder she cried on or the person who took care of her when she was sick.
Don’t let someone new coming into her life overshadow the fact that you’ve been there for her through EVERYTHING.
You’re not competing with her new relationship, you’re just reminding her that you will ALWAYS be there, even if this new lover of hers is not.
And if this person is REALLY great for her, then she’s got two amazing people looking out for her. But in the meantime, you will have to learn how to cope with your best friend’s new relationship status.
Show her some of these awesome BFF quotes to show her how much you TRULY love her, support her new relationship, and that you will always be her best friend, no matter what!
