You are allowed to leave toxic friendships and relationships.
You are allowed to cut anything out of your life that brings you negativity or lowers your confidence.
This does not make you selfish, but instead shows that you will not tolerate anything less than the self worth you deserve.
And I know that ending a friendship is never easy, and it is important to give second chances. But I’m not talking about a couple mishaps here. If they know something bothers you but they continue to do it, if they keep lying, if they keep purposefully doing things to damage your self esteem—if it brings you more stress than happiness, it’s time to let those people go.
You deserve better. You deserve respect and love.
Friendships and relationships are supposed to make you feel better about yourself… remember that.
