Recognizing When Friendships Become Toxic


Ending a friendship is a very personal decision.

Everyone has his or her own threshold — his or her own breaking point. Perceptions of what may be considered ‘toxic’ can vary, depending on the individual. And, the connection to another person in a friendship could be strong, which may outweigh the negatives present within the relationship. Therefore, the signs I’ve compiled — signs that indicate that you may want to put a friendship aside — are only suggestions.

However, if you’re sifting through rocky terrain, perhaps these ‘red flags’ will help move the thinking process along.

  1. I recognise many of these “symptoms” in my own son and daughter (both adults), they often leave me feeling like a lost cause, they are both very head strong and financially successful adults, whereas I am a very casual, “gypsy” kind of person (very unfinancial). It isn’t as simple as “ending a toxic relationship” when they are my own children :(
