One of the most common things people ask me about friendship is when they should keep trying with someone, or move on. It can be difficult to leave a friend behind for many reasons. First of all, friends aren't always easy to find. Also, people aren't perfect so we want to forgive them as best we can. But sometimes a friend's behavior is just too much, and as a result we need to leave. Other times, we just grow apart from someone and that's why the friendship ends.
Friendships are hard to find, but that doesn't mean you should hang on to relationships that are wrong for you. No guilt here, you should be able to leave a friendship when it's toxic or just plain wrong for you. Here are some times when it is common to give up on a certain friendship.
