Whilst most of our friends are there for us through thick and thin and can always be relied on for a good time, we've all encountered the toxic friend.
Remember that we’re born into our family, but we get to voluntarily choose our friends. “If you’re staying in a relationship out of guilt, it’s not a good thing for either party,” says Andrea Syrtash author of He’s Just Not Your Type (And That’s a Good Thing). “All of us deserve to be in relationships with people who we’re excited to spend time with.”
Most friendships are not meant to last. A lot of friendships serve a purpose, and once that purpose expires, so does the friendship. Shedding friendships that don’t serve your best interests is one of the best things you can do for your self-esteem, motivation, and direction. It’s not selfish – it’s healthy!! Kali Rogers, author of Conquering Your Quarter-Life Crisis
