20 Relatable Quotes For Anyone Who Has Ever Been Dumped By A Friend

Mourning the loss of a friendship.

When researching quotes for this article, I was trying to find quotes that really captured the heart break of losing a friend. Because that’s what it is: breaking up with a friend is heartbreaking.

When you become friends with someone, truly great friends, you welcome them into your heart. You give them pieces of you. You share hair-ties and secrets and promises of forever. To separate from a friend is to rip out the corner of your heart where they took up space. You are forever altered.

One thing I found disappointing is that most of the quotes I found about lost friendships were bitter. They were angry and cold. Denying that ever a friendship took place. Saying things like “I’ve never lost a friend, but I realized I never truly had one“. What a cruel thing to do to your memory. To distort all of your happiest days into a still picture cut by shards of pain masquerading as hate.

We need to face our hurt feelings with honesty. What we are feeling when we break up with a friend may be anger on the surface, but that is only to cover the hurt we are trying to bury.

The mourning we have planted deep inside of us. In a time of so much loss, don’t add to it by taking back your happy recollections. Don’t rob yourself of your happy thoughts, or one day pixie dust won’t be enough to lift you off the ground. You will be too weighed down by your own resentments.

Take time to mourn. Don’t forget the happy moments because it hurts less. It’s worth the honesty of the pain, for the future of the memory.

25 Sassy Quotes To Send To Your Fake Friends (Girl, BYE!)

Bye, Felicia!

Fake friends. Who needs them, am I right?!

They’re the absolute worst. They add nothing to your life and if anything, they make your life worse. Their sole purpose is to bring you down and who needs that?

You can be fooled at first, but eventually everyone’s true colors come out. Sometimes it takes a certain scenario to bring that side of them to light but once you see the real them, drop them. It will only get worse from there because you’ll start to notice the falseness more and more.

We’ve all had our fair share of toxic and fair-weather friends. They’re surprisingly hard to let go of, especially if you’re the type of person who tries to find the good in everyone. Some people are just plain nasty and there’s nothing you can do to fix them.


When I finally dropped a fake friend last year that I had since fifth grade, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. All she did was bring me down. She was never happy for me and would always try to one-up me. All we ever talked about was her problems because she never cared about mine. I hit my limit, cut her off, and let me tell you something — I never looked back.

You’ll certainly learn a lot from a toxic friendship and be able to spot the signs to look for in said fake friends. If a “friendship” causes you stress and brings about low self esteem more than it’s making you happy, that person isn’t a real friend. Real friends are there for each other through good and bad times. Real friends will never ditch you for a better offer or say hurtful things to you to bring you down.

Real will always be better than fake!

I sometimes plan out in my head all of the things I would have said to her. These sassy quotes certainly capture how it feels to have fake friend, so send them her way!
