It had been a rough couple of weeks for Anna. She became very depressed after a heated fight with a longtime best friend that felt like a sister to her. They had never had a fight so detrimental to their friendship before. Neither of them even knew if their relationship could be repaired.
One day while Anna was on the train, replaying the fight in her head for the thousandth time, she overheard someone say in passing while she was finding a seat “It is so nice when toxic people stop talking to you. It is like the trash took itself out.” Anna hasn’t shed a tear ever since. Thanks, stranger!
