However, how do you know that they “won’t be there for you” when the going gets tough? According to the Whitehall II study, where more than 10,000 people were followed for over 12 years, there is a very close link between toxic relationships, stress, and health.
So how do you know if you’re in the middle of a toxic BFF situation? Below are some of the main red flags to look out for in your friendship.
They only call you when it rains
You feel exhausted after seeing them
They are Gossip Girl in real life
They love to talk about themselves
They are borderline obsessed with you
These are only some of the signs that you’re in an unhealthy friendship. Perhaps the most obvious red flag is if you thought about a specific friend when reading this post. Never forget that true friends are there for you, “when it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.”
