Another good practice for processing can be gratitude exercises, where you remember you can still hold memories dear and don’t need to erase them. Having an ending doesn’t mean the good times are completely negated. They have taken place, they did mean something to you, and it’s still possible to hold the friendship in a positive light despite the ending. It may be coloured by a tricky ending, particularly if it’s quite abrupt or you’ve been ghosted and you don’t know why. However, instead of thinking in black and white terms, make space to think that there were some really prized moments and memories.
