In life, friends come and go. Here are 10 signs that it’s time to move on from a friendship:
1. The common ground is gone. Sometimes when whatever brought you together is gone you don’t have any reason to stay friends. If you are friends through school and then you graduate you might not be able to sustain a friendship when the common ground is gone.
2. They’re a toxic friend. If they’re just a bad friend all around, it’s time to move on. You shouldn’t have to wonder if it’s the right choice if they are a toxic person in your life.
3. They’re holding you back. If they are holding you back and keeping you from pursuing your goals then it’s time to move on. Your friends should help to elevate you in life, not hold you back.
4. You can’t relate to each other. If you’re not on the same page anymore then it’s time to let the friendship go. If you’re in different places in life and just can’t see where they’re coming from, it’s ok to move on.
