I spent two years waiting patiently for university. From the day I turned 17 and could see university at sight – it was one of the only things on my mind.

I’d say I’ve had one big bust up, one mini bust up, and then a few instances where I’ve made the conscious personal decision to cut off a friendship entirely. Whilst I’m definitely not one of those people that raves about cutting others off and revels in how easy I find it to do so, I definitely do think that occasionally there comes a time where you really have no other choice than to let a friendship go.

Here are a few instances where I think alarm bells should start ringing, and it may just be time to drop a bad friend…
