Hey, everyone, this post will be pointing out about toxic friendship (while being under the wheater because hey it flu season!). Toxic friendship is something we should talk more openly just like any toxic relationship. Sometimes there are moments where your own bestie becomes too toxic to the point they become on something I call “the vampire energy” where they basically suck all your energy and you just feel tired and or irritated and it SUCK!!! So let mention some few things if you’re dealing with a toxic person and what can you do?
Do they talk negative all the times from an XYZ person to the new generation where they play fortnight?
Do they listen to you?
Do they most of the time talking about the past especially their past?
Whenever you tell them something they are like glued on their phone?
Have they ever made you feel bad about yourself like your appearance?
The question is too many but if you feel so tired seeing them it better off on becoming distance to them. It may be hard regardless of the situation but taking your moment is important. Sure communication is great but if you feel like even communication is not working on both of you becoming distance to them is an important focus on other things in life like your job, school, friends, family. and hobbies alongside other things. A few days ago I was talking to my psychiatrist and I mentioned to her that I have this friend let call this person Salty and I was about to give this person a good new that I managed to do my philosophy presentation well but unfortunately this person didn’t bother to listen to me instead wanted to give me a full story of a drama that I personally do not care so I felt pretty ignored and annoyed on something I work hard on for weeks and practicing my speech and praying on not to have a panic attack. She told me it better start becoming a bit distance and surround myself with positive people who will help me flourish and right now I’m working on it. I don’t know how I’m going to end this post exactly but give yourself some time go and meet some new people or talk to that acquaintance more than before who knows if that person will help you in the future.
