Hi, my name is Brooke Miller, psychotherapist and founder of Soapbox Therapy, and I'm here to tell you the proper way to start a friendship after a breakup. If you really want to be friends with your ex a really important thing to remember is to give yourself time to transition. There are emotions that need to heal, possibly hurt that needs to settle, so jumping into a friendship is not going to last. When you've both given yourself enough time, sit down and have a conversation about what you both want out of the relationship. Create the boundaries because things can get confusing really fast. And remember, there was something about this person that you really liked and even loved, so during that conversation and any conversation after, try to treat them with as much respect as possible. And remember to take it slow. Great friendships take time, so don't rush it. And there's nothing wrong that the friendship isn't working after a while. Some things that you thought made you feel comfortable in the beginning may not make you feel so comfortable now. So it's OK to say good bye. My name is Brooke Miller from Soapbox Therapy and that's the proper way to start a friendship after a breakup.
