Good friends and healthy friendships are crucial to women’s well being, at every stage of life. But what happens when a friendship turns “toxic?” When a friend becomes hurtful or mistreats another? When a friend abandons another friend in a time of need? Here, the authors explore these toxic friendships and how women navigate the ups and downs, as well as how broken friendships can be mended, and bad friendships ended.

Explaining and illustrating the various “rules of friendship” at various stages of life, the authors reveal what it takes to be a good friend, how to identify bad friends, and how to move forward when friendships sour. Vignettes of “toxic friendship” behaviors are shared as well as tips on how best to respond to these rule-breaking friends to re-build damaged relationships and repair a friendship’s foundation, when appropriate, and how to decide when it’s time to let go of a relationship that is bringing you down versus keeping you afloat. Information for parents is also provided, as they help their children navigate their friendships. We all need friends, but knowing when and how to let go can help us all be better friends—to ourselves, and to others.
