4 Zodiacs Who Should Say Goodbye To Toxic Friends This Week (January 22 – 28)

If you’ve ever been through a friendship breakup, you know how terrible it can be. In so many ways, it’s even worse than a traditional romantic breakup. You’ve had this connection to your friend for years and thought you’d grow old together, living next door. When that ends, it can rip your heart out. Still, some friendships need to end for your own health and happiness. This week, these four zodiac signs should finally say goodbye to their toxic friendships. You’re better off apart.


You love when your friends are interesting and don’t mind a little drama. It keeps life far from boring. Still, there’s a difference between harmless drama and insane toxicity. Don’t keep a friend around who ruins everything they touch just because it makes your life more interesting. At some point they’re just going to drag you down with them. Ditch the toxic friend this week and spend more attention on the friends who will stick with you through thick and thin.


You’ll put up with a lot before you ever get rid of a toxic friend. If you’re finally thinking about ditching them now, they’ve probably done some pretty messed up stuff that you’ve already put up with for so long. Quit putting yourself last on your list in favor of people who treat you horribly. You deserve way better than this. While it will hurt, getting rid of this toxic friendship will only benefit you in the end. Treat yourself the way you deserve to be treated and only keep around friendships that make you happy.


You love having a big circle of friends, but when you let so many in, the odds of having toxic friendships are too high. Mutual friends have been telling you not to trust this person, but you have yet to do anything about it. You’ll put up with bad people because you think that everyone deserves a chance. While that may be true in general, you don’t have to be the one to give it to them. This week, listen to your gut and prune the toxic people from your social circle. It’ll feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders.


The main reason why you keep toxic people in your life is because you have a noble-yet-misguided hope that you can fix them. You give them great advice about how to fix their lives, yet they don’t seem to listen to you. So you keep them around with the hope that they’ll eventually get their act together. Truth is, no one will change unless it’s what they want. You can’t make them change no matter how much you care. Rather than keeping them around for what they could be, say goodbye to toxic friendships this week because of how they actually are.
