The friend who always interrupts you during your good news to brag about their better news. The boss who purposely downplays your accomplishments and over criticizes your work. The parent refuses to let you grow up and make your own decisions.

Our expert walks us through what makes a relationship toxic and when it’s time to come together or let go.

Dr. Gary Lewandowski
