Relationships are complex. The line between a healthy and unhealthy relationship is not just thin but also seems invisible, so you need to tamper with caution. But when it comes to your best friend, telling them about every single thing or even being involved in their personal life, can often lead to you developing a toxic emotional bond. While everyone needs a best friend in their life to share joys and struggles with, the relationship can also turn out to be unhealthy.
