jump 7holes: Literally going through this, I was in a toxic friendship since December and I was clueless until one day my friend went off at me through text and that is when I realized I was in a toxic relationship... I was a good friend, I listened to my friend, gave advice, gave company, stayed positive, and made the best...on the other hand, my friend would rarely listen to what I have to say, forced me to do stuff, asked for my food, never cared about my emotional health, and worst of all, has NO feelings... it's sucks but I deserve better

Tasnia Nishat: ❤ recognize you can't change other people, but you can stop being a doormat. ❤

GuiltyUntillProvenSober: This really helped me out. I constantly want to do other things and give up my free time. None of my friends care about my well being but expect me to care about there's. I just want to hang out with people but I get awkwardly insulted or ignored every single time. There's never a half way. I ask if they want to hang out they never ask back does this sound unhealthy.

Punpun onodera: I have always wanted to have just one best friend, I guess it is the reason I never had friends before 8th grade. So, this new girl came and made me think I found the perfect friend. HA!So, then she added two more people to this relantionship. One of them, by the way, told everyone my secret and insulted mw behind my back. So now I am a left out forth wheel that gets laughed at all the time. I really want to not be a part of this awful relantioship because I honeslt hate all of them and they ruined my first experience, but the new girl does not let me do that!! That is so awful. I really want to die. I dont get how she can treat me so bad and still say I mean a lot to her.

super captain Lyall man: what if the friend isn't nasty and is plain of just annoying. and they make you feel depressed. what do you do then? what if you regretted being this persons friend and you want to get out of the relationship?

Harley Collette: What if I don't know how I feel about him? I have this friend who likes me and I used to like him back but I don't anymore. Now, I have a different crush but every time I think about my new crush, I think of what would my friend, who likes me, would say. I don't know how to tell him that I don't like him anymore. He's making me feel like I shouldn't have a crush on him. Sorry, that was long...

Duality: What do you do if this toxic person is your brother?

Jemangelstorm: I'm the toxic one. My friend is annoyingly happy and clingy. I just want to be alone!!!! It's not a bad friendship I just hate it and her.

Margaret Williamson: I'm afraid that I'm being emotionally abusive, my friends hang out without me sometimes. But I tend to be a pretty clingy person cause my friend left me in the past, i feel like it's my fault I get left out so I take it out on other people. Not in a way that could harm them physically but I don't know about mentally. Is there any way I can tell if the things I say are okay?

Emerald72 AJ: Is it just me or did she day selfie 2 hm?.

Anne Gabrielle: I wanna get out of this relationship I have with a friend of mine in fact we are supposedly best friends but she always thinks I'm "cheating" on her with like other people. And she isn't letting hang out with my other best friend and always threatens me that like if I sit with my other best friend on the bus she is going to start crying or she'll tell my crush I like him and I'm really sick of it. Any tips??

Animating Wolf: my friend is just plain annoying and making me feel insecure ,talking about her problems all the time and im tired of listening to her ,but other times we have a fun and stuff idk!

Curtis Button: You can change other people.

Salix Capreacorn: what do you do if you truly like the person you are in a toxic relationship with, but they are also abusive? one of my best friends is emotionally abusive, and i truly truly want to be their friend. they werent always like this...but idk why suddenly theyre emotionally abusive. i really want our friendship to work. i dont want this friendship to "phase out" i want them to stay my friend. what do i do?

Alexis B: my friend and I used to get along fine,but we've grown apart. Are conversations tend to tutn into arguments where she'll try to force her opinion on me,and is always complaining about her life yet when I try to(not in a bad way)she just shuts it out and often treats me like I don't matter. I want to end the relationship,but my other friends are also friends eith her and I don't want to feel bad about it...

Llama Lester: i need help okay so one of my best friends (not anymore) we were friends for two years and i really loved her like really i had a huge crush on her and one day she said she needed a break from me and it broke my heart and she came back and we became best friends again and then i really started to realize how fake and horrible she is so i said everything i ever wanted to say like how i had a crush on her and how i dont anymore and that i just didnt like her and she agreed so we didnt talk for like a month and then she texted me and said how she missed me and wants me back and i didnt miss her but i felt bad so i said okay (which was a horrible idea) and i didnt really talk to her as much and she never really texted me anymore like we did before so i cut the friendship again and she said she was happier without me but she wanted me back ?? im so confused this happened months ago and i still think about her i dont want to be friends again bc we had a toxic relationship but i cant get her out of my head and im so mad at myself because i keep looking at her ig and i just get angry about how many friends she has and how much she "loves" them and how she talks about them like she talked about me and i just cant stop i want to but i cant and im just so tired of it.

Galaxy*_* Princess: Can we also go up to them and say "I don't want to be your friend anymore"?

Amine Ben Daya: i have a friend i really want to get rid of but its hard

Vivienne Liani: I had a friend who would constantly get jealous when I began hanging out with other people, drag me around to do what they wanted, got angry when I wanted to do something for myself and told me on a regular basis how I was failing as a friend...
I've begun ignoring her and have been doing a for a while now, but she just won't go away.
