How To Break Up With A Friend, From Dr. Irene Levine (VIDEO)

Everybody has their limits! This week on Mondays With Marlo, friendship expert Dr. Irene Levine told me that you should give your friends the benefit of the doubt, but when it becomes clear that the friendship has become destructive, you need to dissolve it. Don't blame the other person -- assume responsibility for your decision and leave your friend's ego intact. A friendship sabbatical can also be beneficial for those who just need a break from one another.
