Friendshipping: The Art of Keeping Friends (or not)

It's unfortunate to say but it's true: some friendships aren't meant to last forever.

People and priorities change over time and that is totally normal and part of life. But how do we know when it's time to let go? And if we think it can be mended, how do we go about stitching it back together?
