Friendships are not created equal and I cannot even begin to explain the toll that some of the most toxic ones have taken on me in the last few years. I have literally fell ill; physically, mentally and emotionally drained by people I genuinely care about because the title of being a friend made me feel I needed to be there at all costs, even if it meant I would suffer for it.
