Friendships aren’t always the best thing to go along with. There are times where we may get trapped in friendships that are unhealthy or toxic the same way some relationships do. Ending a friendship isn’t something that anyone wants to do, and knowing when it’s time when a friendship is not really working well, you have got no other choice but to quit.
Here are few ways by which you can tackle such a friendship.
Get hold of a support system
If it’s time to end a friendship, you need to make sure you have a support system of other friends circle who can help you going through it. Ending a friendship when you don’t have positive connections in your life can often leave you feeling lonely and sometimes devastated. Lifestyle guru Kris Carr says, “Seek guidance from a coach, therapist or a really grounded friend — the kind that loves you unconditionally and isn’t afraid to (metaphorically) slap you back to reality.”
Take your stand
Sometimes, people don’t understand that ending a friendship is just as serious as ending a relationship. However, if you know that the friendship is misguiding and holding you back, then you need to take a stand for yourself immediately.
Try talking in public
Instead of acting something like this in a private place where you’re more likely to be swayed away by an emotional scene, take it to a public setting. “It’s not unheard of for toxic people to get belligerent or even violent. Talking to them publicly can significantly diminish the chances of this happening,” says Harbinger.
Just quit, and don’t let yourself look back on such a friendship. When it’s done, it’s done. Of course, you’ll always recall the memories of your times together, even the times where you thought the relationship was healthy. But, letting yourself move on instead of looking back and continuing to think about a former friend is the only way that you’re going to be healed all the way.
