Friends are undoubtedly the most important people in our lives. They are the ones that motivate us to be our better selves, the ones who help us grow, the ones who are always there beside us, no matter how hard life gets.
Friends are the people that we cannot imagine our lives without.
However, sometimes people change. Wait, let me rephrase that. No, not sometimes. People always change. That’s something that we have no control over. So, naturally what has once been an honest and loving friendship can easily turn into something that no longer adds any value to your life.
So when one day you wake up and it suddenly feels like your friendship has ran its course, the best thing that you can do is stop and re-evaluate your connections with these so-called friends.
It’s simple. If they hurt you, they don’t deserve to be a part of your life. Life is just too short to be wasted on people who suck the happiness out of you…
Here are 5 types of friends that you shouldn’t hesitate to walk away from:
1.The FAKE ONE
You know those people that always compliment you, but you can just feel that their words are only trash? Yes, well… They don’t mean those things. They don’t do that because they really feel like it, but because that way they’ll get you to like them and be their friend. Trust me, these people are real. And they are out there. The only reason they pretend to be your friend is because they are desperate for attention. Stay away from fake people like this.
Ahhh, the naysayer. The downer. The constant killjoy. These people remind me of only one thing. Grey, gloomy clouds. The minute they enter a room, it is like the entire atmosphere changes and suddenly there is no sunshine, no air to breathe. They destroy all of your hopes, shoot down all of your ideas and discourage you from even trying. All because of one thing. Because these people are too terrified to get out of their comfort zones and make a mistake for a change.
3.The CONSTANT DOUBTER
When it comes to the worst of ‘friends’, the doubters are the worst of the worst. Trust me. I’ve been friends with one for a very long time, and I am happy to say that this person is no longer a part of my life. The doubters are people who are jealous of you. That’s the main reason why they put you down, criticize you and make you think that you don’t have what it takes to succeed in pursuing your goals. Doubters love to see you fail for they bathe in your misery. It gives them power and strength. It makes them feel superior. So, why would you even call these people friends?
Oh, God. If I only had a dime for every time a bragger friend started telling me the story of how they met their lovely boyfriend… Or how they have the best job… Or whatever it is about them that they think it’s so important that they have to share with the entire world… Well, I’d be rich as hell. My point is, braggers may not be as toxic as doubters can be, but they sure are annoying and exhausting human beings. And you don’t need to be around people who constantly suck the life out of you.
And last but not least, the complainers are the type of friends who are always unhappy, unsatisfied and tired of life. There’s always something wrong with them, or the things they do. If you ask me, these people are like black holes of negativity. If you don’t be careful, you can easily get sucked inside their world of misery.
In the end, YOU are the people that you surround yourself with. So, choose wisely. Don’t let toxic people kill your vibe and destroy your dreams. Not everyone you hang out with is your friend. The sooner you accept this, the better off you’ll be.
