Make an effort to converse on a regular basis. Make the initial move to mend any damaged friendship. Invite them to tea, take them to the movies, go on a double date, or simply stop by their workplace. Get out there and converse with one another. People frequently detest others because they do not know or comprehend them. So try to be patient and open up to them.
People hate talking about themselves, so try not to focus exclusively on yourself for several conversations first. Ask questions about their life: what they like/dislike, how they view things, etc. This will allow them to feel comfortable enough to open up too.
At some point, they may feel like telling you something bad about themselves or revealing a dark secret. Avoid reacting negatively to this, it only makes them close off even more. Instead, ask them directly if there is anything wrong with them. Try to keep an open mind and listen without judgment until they tell you otherwise.
Last but not least, show interest in them even though they aren't interested in you. Let them know that you are still thinking about what they said or did last time you saw each other. This will make them feel important and loved, which will encourage them to love and trust you back.
So, going out of your way to interact with people you dislike is a terrible idea.
When you're out and about, for example, keep talks brief yet nice. Consider the following small chat. If the other person dislikes you, they may be unwilling to be friendly with you. That is their fault in this scenario. Your common buddy will be aware of and appreciate your efforts.
If they wish to try to repair the friendship, focus on strategies to re-establish the connection and rediscover the connections you formerly had. If you've determined that you no longer want them in your life, don't conduct a break-up conversation unless you truly believe they need to hear what you have to say for their own good. Even if they ask you to help them process their feelings, just like everyone else, they want to be allowed to grieve their loss in their own way.
In addition to being honest with yourself about how you feel, it's important to be honest with your friends. Don't hide relationships from them because you think it will make their pain go away or avoid telling them how you really feel because you don't want to hurt their feelings. Honesty is one of the most important qualities in a friend, so if you can't be honest with them, then they should not be allowed into your heart.
Sometimes our friends move away and sometimes they leave us behind due to differences in opinion or circumstances outside of their control. Regardless of the reason, when someone enters your life and starts to drain you energy, love you or hurt you, you have two choices: remove them from your life or let them stay part of your journey. Letting them stay part of your journey means that you will still engage with them but only in the ways that honor what you have decided regarding the relationship.
Set proper limits.
Sometimes sitting down with the other person and clearing the air is the greatest approach to get to the bottom of an issue. Send them an email or a letter asking if you can meet for a private talk at a specific time and location. If they agree, plan to meet within a few days.
If this doesn't work, it may be time to ask for help from a friend or family member. Someone on your side will know how to bring up the subject without being accusatory or insulting.
Last but not least, stay calm! Sometimes people need some time to think things over before responding. Don't take it personally if your issue isn't resolved right away.
