I know it's hard saying goodbye, but I think it's time we went no contact. I wish you the best. Hey [Ex's Name], I have to be honest with you, because you deserve that. I'm ready to move on, so I think it's best if we stop texting.
How do you say goodbye to a dear friend who is moving away?
When I think about the people I am most thankful for, you are always on that list. I am so sad that you're moving away, but I know that wherever you go, your kindhearted spirit will follow. So long, my neighbor and my very good friend.
Dear (her name), Something has been bothering me for a long time, but I couldn't bring myself to tell you about it. But I'm starting to feel like I can't take it anymore. I believe it is time for us to move on.
You must be honest and upfront about your opinions and if they can't respect your preferences, then there's no reason why you shouldn't be sending them a goodbye text for last. If it's closure they need, then these texts are the best way to end all conversations with your ex.
To say goodbye to a friend in person, honestly tell them how much they mean to you, and let them know you love them and will miss them. If that's too hard, send them off with a warm hug and a kind smile, or throw them a goodbye celebration before they go to show them you care.
We miss that person and we tend to miss some of who we are with them around, too. Part of why this can be so difficult is that we plant roots of ourselves in the friendships that we nurture, and when a friend is suddenly no longer around, we may experience this as a loss of a part of our own identity.
Even if you've been friends with someone for a long time, people can grow apart or no longer put equal effort and care into the relationship. If you can't count on them, or feel like you're doing all the work to maintain the friendship, it's okay to go with your gut and cut it off.
Try saying something like, "I have a lot of complicated feelings about this that I'm still trying to work through, but I just want you to know that I'll always value the good memories we shared together." You can even look for the good that can come from saying goodbye.
