Dear Dr. Michelle
I have had to break up with my best friend. She was not able to listen to my feelings about things in the friendship. She also stopped spending time with me like we used to and would never tell me why. I feel sad and hurt and am in a deep depression I am struggling to get out of. I blame myself. I will still have to see her on occasion. How can I get out of this deep depression and deal with times I may have to see her?

Dr. Michelle advises you to spend some more time grieving by identifying what you are grieving most: the breakup or the loss of your friendship. She also recommends to refrain from talking bad about your ex-friend to reduce drama. See Dr. Michelle's full response below:
