Ask that it not affect your friendship

You are allowed to create some rules for your friendship. You and this friend have always had an understanding surrounding how you engage. You know what it means to be good friends with each other. If she chooses to engage in a toxic relationship, it’s okay to ask that she A) not cancel on you at the last minute, or repeatedly, because of issues in the relationship and B) not spend the entire time you’re together talking about it. She needs to continue to be reliable, and this needs to continue to be a two-way-street of a friendship.
