Some relationships are meant to last forever and others…not so much. But romantic relationships aren’t the only ones to go South.

Friendships can have expiration dates too. According to a psychologist there are 3 signs it’s time to break up:

  1. You Get Very Little Back – one-sided
  2. You Spend Too Much Time Gossiping About Them
  3. You’ve already Forgiven Them Numerous Times

So now that you’ve recognized the signs that you’re in a toxic friendship how do you do the breaking up? Be honest. Don’t attack the person, still be respectful. You don’t want to lose your dignity by hitting below the belt.

Serve up your thoughts.
