Everyone always told me that your best friend in the beginning of high school will not be your best friend by the time you graduated, I never believed that.

Telling them my story, I hope they cut off their toxic friendship like I did because I would never want anyone to have a friend that made them uncomfortable in their own skin like she did.

This is one tough experience in life that changed who I am
