Friends are some of the most important people whose opinions matter in our lives. If you have good friends, you’d grow in the right direction because our friends motivate us to be better people. They encourage us to stay focused, and all they truly want is what’s best for us.
Friends are amazing, but unfortunately, people can change, and it’s not always going to be positive. We are all subject to change, so there’s no need to wonder how it happens. 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.
You could wake up one day and discover that some of the people you spent your entire childhood with is no longer worthy to be called your friends. We have to be ready to re-evaluate these connections occasionally. Even though it’s often a painful process, it’s still quite 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 NAYSAYER
This character is the typical kill joy who never has anything good to say. Think of them as people with the personality of a grey wall – gloomy and constantly low. The minute they enter a room, it is like the entire atmosphere changes and all the positive vibes would immediately vanish. 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.
2. The SHOWOFF
It’s so upsetting being with people who make it a point of duty to brag. While there’s nothing bad about friends talking about their wins with one another, some people cross the line and try to make others feel small when they narrate their achievements. Oh, I have the most perfect boyfriend, the best job, millions in my account. The point is, braggers may not be as toxic as others, 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.
3. The CONSTANT DOUBTER
Doubters are simply the most exhausting people to be around, and they powerfully kill all your good vibes. 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. These people are super-jealous of every slight achievement and would go the extra mile to make sure your progress is stalled. They don’t believe you have what it takes to achieve your goals. Doubters love to see you fail for they bathe in your misery. It makes them feel strong powerful and superior. So, why would you even call these people friends?
4. The FAKE ONE
These people are the reason why I almost gave up on friends. These are the ones who say one thing and mean another. 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, they are real, and they are all over the place. The only reason they pretend to be your friend is that they are desperate for attention. Stay away from fake people like this.
5. The COMPLAINER
Complainers are those friends who are always unhappy, unsatisfied and tired of life. If you hang them around them a lot, you’d become them like them by association and soon, life would become too exhausting for you as well. 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.
