“It’s important to first understand what is so toxic about her,” says Eve Eliot, a psychotherapist, yoga instructor and meditation teacher. “Is she depressed, negative, angry? Be as specific as possible so you can address the problems succinctly -- without getting personal or dramatic.” Eliot advises telling your friend how you feel. If you still don’t see a change, you can “immunize” yourself in two ways: You can either choose compassion (try to understand what has made her so toxic in the first place, such as marital or financial problems), or you can distance yourself. Let her know, tactfully, that you are sorry for her troubles, but that you’ll need a break from negative thinking. You have your own attitude to worry about!
