☆  toxic  有害な


Toxic is usually used to describe a substance that is poisonous, such as toxic waste. However, it is often used these days to describe a person or relationship that is not healthy and harmful to your mental health. So, you might have a toxic friend or be stuck in a toxic relationship for example.

When I was in primary school, I was bullied by my “best friend” … it was a strange situation. When it was just me and her, she was so nice, and acted like my best friend. But when other people were around, she was so mean to me! It was very confusing, and there wasn’t much I could do about this toxic friendship. Luckily, her older sister changed schools and so her parents decided that my “friend” should change schools too. I never saw her again and my school life was much more fun!

Hopefully, you have never experienced a toxic friendship!
