Hi everyone! When learning a new language, I always love learning also ways of saying, so here are some in Italian!
Gettare alle ortiche Toss (throw) to the poison ivy - an Italian idiom meaning to throw away badly an opportunity or chance, to waste (time, money, etc.), to abandon something, to get rid of something you no longer intend to use.
È sempre brutto buttare alle ortiche un’amicizia ma non ho via d’uscita.
It is always bad to throw away a friendship but I have no way out.
The other phrases with similar meaning:

Are there any sayings you like in Italian, that you know about?
