6 Signs YOU’RE the Toxic Friend

We talk a lot about signs of toxic friendships in psych2go’s videos, but we haven’t yet talked about signs that you might actually be the toxic friend. When you recognize and take responsibility for the faults that might be you, you can become a better friend for someone. In this video, we share signs of a toxic friendship, as well as signs toxic relationships. Hope this video can help change someone’s life by bringing awareness to areas that may require change.

DISCLAIMER: It’s normal to relate to some of these qualities. What’s important is you’re aware of them so you won’t unknowingly hurt anyone.
