Toxic People

Yesterday, I realized that I may have to cut a toxic person from my life. I try not to walk away from friends because I am the loyal type. But there comes a time when you realize that a friendship can be toxic and unhealthy even if the person hasn't had the chance to spill over their toxic behavior onto your life. I just cant sit and watch them do things to people that they do not have the place to do. I know some people say why walk away? A friend helps and show that what their friends are doing is toxic. But what happens when they cant see what you are trying to do. I have talked to them about this behavior but falls on death ears. Sometimes your words/actions are just as toxic as drugs or anything else. All I can do is pray for them and be a friend from a distance because I can't not let their behavior intrude in my life.

Girl,I am in the same situation now. Yesterday, after I talked to my "friend" I realized that I am going to have to cut them for good. It hurts, but your right their behavior and attitude can have a negative affect on you. But your doing the right thing by praying for them.
