8 Signs that Your Friendship is Toxic

Friendships are really important parts of our everyday life. Healthy friendships remind us that we are not alone. They provide a safe environment where the parties involved can share their joy, vent about their frustrations, seek guidance and support for our wellbeing. 

On the other hand, toxic friendships are frustrating and can leave one of the parties feeling used, unappreciated, unrecognised and worse still anxiety-filled. It is thus important to know the signs to look out for in a friendship to know if you are dealing with a toxic friend. If you know the signs earlier, you can intervene earlier to save time and energy.
