Hello, everyone!!

It comes a time in our life when we realize what relationships we need and don't need in order for us to become the best we can be. What is the best way to go about "cutting off" any relationship?

I used to change my phone number nearly every year. If you can't get ahold of me then chances are I don't want you around. I haven't done that in a long time, but have been known to become super busy when I've discovered a toxic friend.

To me, cutting off a relationship means stopping all contact. I don't think it has to be permanent, but if you need to cut off contact it should probably be done cold turkey. I'd remove the contact information from my address books, phone, and social media.

Oh, wow! That's a lot of phone numbers! I only had to do that once when a guy's behavior got really disturbing.
