“I BROKE UP WITH HER.”

Though Natalie* and Vanessa*, both 26, had been besties since primary school, they began to drift apart, so they booked a holiday together to fix it — but that brought the tension to the surface. “I couldn’t wait to finally spend some quality time with Vanessa. But the second we met the other people, Vanessa would always put me down in front of
the rest of the group. Then I suddenly realised she’d been doing it all my life. I explained to Vanessa why it was time to call it a day on our friendship. She turned it around on me saying that I was too sensitive and a drama queen. But I stood my ground. She never tried to contact me again.”

Silver lining: No more toxicity in your life!
