Toxic People: How to End a Bad ‘Friendship’ or Relationship


How do you know if you are part of a toxic relationship? Well, much like a cold, toxic relationships have symptoms. Does your friend or romantic partner put you down all the time? Are they jealous when you spend time with others? Do they constantly bring up parts of you that they want to change? Then you might be in a toxic relationship and this video contains help and advice on how to remove yourself from that situation.


Wellcast videos are American so some of the information is Americanised. I think the information in this video is important for young people to learn as toxic relationships only ever seem to be thought of in romantic relationships, not in terms of friendships which young people often overlook. The film is animated, and would work as a starting point for discussions with older teens (maybe 13+) about the nature of friendship and healthy romantic relationships.
