Before you decide to ditch your friendship, ask yourself what happened to break your trust. Did your friend lie to you? Did he start a rumor or blab all of your secrets? Or, were you being overly suspicious of his actions? Understanding the reason behind the broken trust can help you to better assess the situation and figure out how to proceed. For example, say that your friend told you that he needed to borrow money to pay his rent, when he really used it to take his other buds out on the town — repeatedly, month after month. Losing trust in your friend, in this case, has nothing to do with your suspicions and everything to do with his actions. If he isn’t remorseful and willing to change, the friendship may not be worth salvaging.
