"Holding on to a toxic friend is like keeping trash in your home, eventually the situation is going to stink for everyone living in the house....so do yourself a favor and take out the trash!"
"A toxic friend is like a leech in their ability to suck your energy, and leave you feeling unmotivated to accomplish your dreams."
"Would we start to realize that a toxic friend is like the poopy green custard icing that nobody likes and does not really mix well with our personal flavor? Would we start to realize that boyfriends aren't really a necessity but more like sprinkles?"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
