They tease, they gossip, and they backstab. It’s hard to recognize or realize unhealthy friendships and it’s harder to let them go. It's important that you don't ignore red flags in your friendship. Here are a few signs that your friendship is toxic.

Red Flag 1: It’s not easy when someone you think of as a best friend won't appreciate your work. If they don't appreciate you now, they probably won't appreciate you later. 

Red Flag 2 They don't support your dreams and goals, but they love to see you fail—which is why we need to put a stop to them once and for all.

Red Flag 3: Your “friend” doesn’t spend time with you but you see them hanging out with other people all the time. They don’t make an effort to meet you.

Red Flag 4: They call you only when they want to. They aren’t there to quench your thirst when needed.
