Friendship is a tricky subject. We all love our friends, but sometimes they can get in the way of things. In this blog post, we’ll talk about some issues that friendships bring up and how to solve them!
Friendships can sometimes be toxic. This is when a friend consistently makes you feel bad about yourself, gives out gossip or criticizes everything that you do. Some signs of this are: the friend always has to check in with what they say before saying it and constantly comments on your outfit without asking how you’re feeling first (i.e.: “I love your skirt!”)
Friendships don’t have to end because of a fight! Try talking things through calmly so that there’s no hurt feelings or tension between friends – remember not to hold grudges either! If an argument does happen, make sure both people apologize for their part in it and then forgive each other afterwords. It’s also possible that you may not be able to stay friends with someone you just met or have a falling out. That’s okay!
No one is perfect and everyone has their flaws, but it doesn’t make them bad people – so remember that in friendships too. Don’t let your feelings cloud the good times you had with this person because they’re human like everybody else and sometimes things can change over time. If being friends isn’t working for both parties then there’s nothing wrong with ending the friendship if necessary. It might feel difficult at first but think about how much better off you’ll be without having toxic energy around you all of the time. There are always new opportunities waiting ahead when friendships end!

Friendship Kills: When Friendships End A few weeks ago I had an experience that reminded me how important it is to be true to myself at all times and not let other people dictate who I should be. It’s really hard when your friends don’t like some aspect of who you are but this doesn’t give them the right to disrespect you for it (and vice versa). This person in particular was someone with whom I used to get along fabulously but I could tell was having a hard time accepting me as the person that I am, and after a lot of consideration decided to cut ties with them.

In the past, I used to get along fabulously with someone but could tell they were having a hard time accepting me as the person that I am and after much consideration decided to cut ties with them.

I hope you’ll take some time to reflect on what I’ve shared here and then begin taking steps toward a better future.” “If at any point during our conversation it became clear that we weren’t going down paths of understanding (e.g. you have a difficult time accepting me as the person that I am), then it was my responsibility to walk away.”
There are so many other people out there who want nothing more than to be accepted for who they really are, and in order for them to do that, we need to start letting go of our preconceived notions about what’s “normal”. We all deserve better relationships with others and ourselves.” “I can’t say this enough: YOU ARE Worthy! You’re not alone on your journey through life – nobody is!”
“There will always be bumps along the way but if we support each other instead of throwing obstacles in one anothers paths (or giving up when things get challenging) then someday soon we’ll get to a place where we can feel content with ourselves and the lives that we lead.”
“At least now I know – you don’t have to be perfect in order for someone else, or yourself, to love you. You only need to keep trying.”
This might very well be my last post because it’s been too much of a struggle for me lately. But if and when I come back..I’ll try not to do so as an athlete anymore. It doesn’t seem worth all this pain just so I can compete again someday.” “See ya soon! :)” (image)
The takeaway from Kaitlyn is threefold: Support one another unconditionally, no matter what the circumstances. Keep trying. And, if you’re going to compete again someday – don’t do it as an athlete.”

Write two more sentences about Kaitlyn’s story and how we can take away from her experience: “The takeaway from Kaitlyn is threefold: Support one another unconditionally, no matter what the circumstances. Keep trying. And, if you’re going to compete again someday – don’t do it as an athlete.”
Kaitlyn is a three-time Winter Olympics medalist in snowboarding. She won gold medals for the halfpipe event at the 2014 Sochi and 2018 Pyeongchang Games, silver medal for women’s slopestyle event at 2014 Sochi and 2019 Aspen Skiing World Championships.
She had success after her accident because she never let it stop her from pursuing what she loved to do most: compete. The takeaway from Kaitlyn is that we should all support one another unconditionally no matter what the circumstances are–even if you’re not on your feet again like Kaitlyn was post injury. She also reminds us to keep trying – even when something seems “impossible” or as an athlete who has to deal with a lot of adversity. Why Friendship Kills: the more we rely on others for happiness, validation, or security – the less happy or confident we become. When you’re truly content in your own skin and believe that you don’t need others for what makes you feel good about yourself – then people will start gravitating toward you because they want to be around someone who’s genuinely confident and at peace with themselves. Relationships are important but if they get in the way of living an amazing life–then it may not be worth it. **When friends stop supporting each other unconditionally like Kaitlyn did post injury–it can also lead to betrayal which is just as damaging emotionally as well as physically when friendships turn into
