Rox Mysoxx: What about wanting to help drug addicts. By definition we the helpers are toxic to them

Erin Chung: I'm trying to block a girl from my school out because she's a toxic friend according to several videos. I don't know how to block her because every time I try to refuse her, I feel guilty! Any advice?

Aubrey Hodes: Nvm I was right the first time

Aubrey Hodes: Out of not into lol ops

Aubrey Hodes: I'll try this. I have two to get started on. I'm just kind of weak. Hopefully Incan put myself ina better place and not get pulled into my friends "war zone" again.

Ayushma Pun: Me and my bff have a toxic relationship

timothy hyde: my daughter was always distractive and very bad to me. Stopped seeing her for 8 years . slowly I let her back in. I let her visit 1 time a mo. , weekends. she was trying very hard. she become sick and no place to live so I let her move into my farm. It was good at first but has been getting steadily like the old days. I don't like her. I feel beaten down and worthless. She is mean. I'm 72-year-old. COPD, lupus. I'm not here alone. My son and others live here. I was in good health, horse trainer, strong.
Id like her to move out of house. I told her I'll get a mobile for her to live in on the farm. she likes that. I fell for the old bate and switch. She was always a partner to her father hurting me. Alienation. was his game. This he hurt me with more then anything, turning my only little girl against me.

Moravian Mapper: Yeah i just found ALL of my friends are toxic. Very nice.

tishtash321: When I got engaged, one of my best friends of 10+ yrs came back a few days later and said "I was talking to (insert her SINGLE friend that I'm not a fan of) and she said the average price of an engagement ring is $10,000". This was after she asked how much it was the day before. Throughout my entire engagement and planning she wasn't happy for me at all. She then blamed me for having a destination wedding she couldn't afford to come to. She also then insulted me for being atheist (which I don't even talk about cuz who cares) and started sending me scriptures and bible verses out of nowhere. She also used to constantly ask ppl for money, but go on extravagant vacations. I was constantly putting my needs to the side so she could regularly unload her problem on to me. And would never ask me about myself. Long story long, I HAD to remove this toxic girl from my life. When I did she called me selfish, among many other things. A few months later, and I feel so free! The only thing worse than being in a toxic relationship is staying in a toxic relationship. Find the strength and free yourself! <3

Yousif Nuhad: Am I the only one who hears selfie instead of step?

silverTHfan: What if I actually have a toxic relationship with my sibling who verbally abuses and threatens my life? Someone I disown as my sibling but other people don't want me to disown the sibling all because I'm young and they think it'll change when I know it won't? I may be young but I am not stupid. If I was immature and mentally weak enough I would've killed myself already due to this abuse within my family. Most family relationships are wonderful for most but not for me. I just hope I am not alone in this department.

Blah Blah: but I can't leave my friend cause she's depressed n suicidal(that's what she claims n I do believe her even tho many people tell me not to) when I tried to leave once, she made me feel guilty by saying she will kill herself. so I stayed with her. if she actually does, I cannot take the guilt of causing it for the rest of my life since I personally find it hard to every be happy. whenever I'm with her, she is always talking about herself, whenever I talk about something but myself, she changes it to her. she makes me feel more miserable.. she also makes me guilty by constantly posting on social media that we have been friends for so long. but she treats me like a second choice n it hurts... she also somehow makes me forgive her every single time. she always complains that there is no one there for her even when I was there. that made people think she's just looking for attention. but tbh there's no one else I feel more comfortable with than her so idk what to do... help?

Oliver: I love how simple this video is. Especially the cartoon animation

Vicky Chu!: This was showed in my class :)

TheLuckyBot: my mom haves a toxic friend and she is so annoying-_- she gets jealous of my mom and she tells her to give her a ride and she lies to my mom.

mirzamay: Abused people, please don't listen to this. It starts out great then turns bad. You don't change yourself from patterns your parents programmed into your subconscious just because someone who obviously never suffered serious long term abuse tells you to.
You don't teach other people how to treat you, or how to behave , they do that on their own. Nor do you teach yourself how to be treated as a small child. We learn these patterns as a child before we even know what is going on. Saying that nothing happens to you that you don't give permission for and that you teach people how to treat you is extremely hurtful and gives absolutely no concrete skills on how to survive this misfortune or to change it.
So for all those here looking for hope and help,you can find better, learn to read the signs of unintentional abuse masquerading as self help.
But keep looking, concrete advice and help is out there and you can eke yourself out of the situation others put you in, it won't be pat or easy, but it will feel better eventually. Search onward.
Edit, watch DoctrSam

Declan Corea: I'm stopping for being friends with my best friend from elementary school and my best friend from middle school (they are complete assholes). I'm tired of being the but of every joke getting bossed around getting punched and shoved. But I have to ride with my ex-best friend from middle school to my house because it's a carpool. He just now bended my shoes and chocked my in another persons car! I'm so done with them. I'm gonna see if I can start walking (40 minutes) home (it's better than having to ride with them).

Emanuela Damaris: I have a friend who constantly drags me down, uses me as a scapegoat and only cares about their own problems. But she gives me more (food etc.) than I can give, because I don't have the money. XC She makes me feel bad about it... like if she's trying to buy my friendship. What should I do? I don't want to be an asshole.

Kw cherrygirl: All I can hear is selfie when she says step

Abby Grace: Thank you for everything you do on this channel! This really does help a lot of people. Thank you for putting something good out into the world :)
