5 Ways to Deal with Toxic People

  1. Confront them. Sometimes people don't get the message, so you just need to tell them how you feel.

  2. Ask for some space. It doesn't have to be in a rude way, but sometimes you need alone time.

  3. Don't let the behavior continue. Especially for people who have grown up with difficult people, refusing to acknowledge the problem isn't going to help you.

  4. Find other people to surround yourself with. If you make other friends, eventually you might just drift apart, with no big conflict.

  5. Cut them out. If the problem is drastic and harming you as a person, then you need to put your emotional health first.

Friend problems are normal - hang in there and talk to someone about it if you need to!
