The Busy Giffs: Toxic Friends

July 10, 2012

Toxic Friends

Everyone has one right?
That friend that you know you really shouldn't be friends with.

Whether it's her talking about you behind your back, or only calling when no one else is around, or her complete inability to ever actually be around...
...I'm not the only one right!?

Now, I'm not talking about the friends who "don't understand the pressures of being a mom" or the "my priorities are different now" thing.
Granted, I don't go out to the bar anymore but do still have time with my friends, either out for dinner, or over the house to watch a crappy movie... I still make time for them.
And no, it's not always easy.
Sometimes I'm exhausted but seeing my friends just makes my day that much better so really, I love it.

But what about the friends that are no longer good for you?

I just purged a handful of Facebook "Friends" but one especially hurt.
I "unfriended" someone I once considered to be my best friend.

Not because I'm a mom and she's too out of touch with my schedule, no.
Not because she lives far away, no.

But because every time we make plans, "something happens", and the plans we made get flushed down the drain.
But then, that friend will go on my Facebook and "like" every single one of my pictures and statuses.
It's a bad relationship and my heart can't take no more.

I'm sure that when the time comes, I will go back to the way things were but for now, I feel a little bit better knowing that I'm not purposely subjecting myself to the emotional roller coaster of toxic friends.
