All my friends know this about me—never call when you could send a text instead. I cannot stand talking on the phone.
Maybe you can relate. Texting preference aside— have you ever had a clingy friend who you love but makes you cringe a little bit when a notification from them pops up on your phone? Maybe you even avoid opening it?
Super-close friendships are one thing—but feeling like someone is all up in your grill all the time is another, and it can get suffocating. There are plenty of not-so-great or unhealthy ways to handle a clingy friend that I would not recommend — like ghosting them, or letting frustration pile up until you blow up at them one random Tuesday afternoon.
Here are four strategies that will help you nip an uncomfortable situation in the bud in the most positive way possible. After texting, my second favorite thing is healthy boundaries. Now you just have to tell them that. Healthy communication is a key element of any relationship because you should feel comfortable bringing up concerns when you have them.
The goal? You have a way to express your needs and can help your friend avoid feeling defensive or shutting down. That happens. You deserve friendships that feel good to be in! Some unhealthy friendships can be repaired—but some are too toxic. Asserting your boundaries helps you know the difference. Think of it as a halftime huddle—you and your friend just need to figure out how to get things back in a good rhythm.
Instead, pat yourself on the back for realizing your boundaries have been crossed, and then use these tips to get some breathing room, without sending your friend packing.
