I've started and stopped writing this post so many times now. Every time I've had to close my laptop, mellow out and consider: is it really worth posting? Is it, though? Well, now I feel I must, because I've had so many conversations with others lately that make me think that maybe, just maybe...it isn't just me.
I'll stop beating around whatever dirty, vague shrubbery is growing here now – in this post I am going to address the issue of one-sided friendships. Also known as those very dramatically named toxic friendships. Yeah, I'm opening this can. Watch out. The worms will fly everywhere.
So in case you didn't know, a one-sided friendship, a toxic friendship, is when one of your closer acquaintances (I'm really aware I'm going to use the word 'friend' a lot in this post, brb getting a thesaurus up online) seems to get more out of your little union than you do. They take take take, and rarely, if ever, give.
