Friends are really important in our lives but this is no reason to have certain types of friends in our lives. Learn to choose your friends wisely as your friends can either raise you up or pull you down. If you have any friend with any of the qualities in this list, it’s time you unfriend them as you really don’t need them in your life.
Below are 5 types of friends you don’t need in your life
1. BACKSTABBING FRIEND
Why have a friend you can’t trust? I better have no friends than have friends who are backstabbers. A friend who says bad about you when you are not there to defend yourself is no friend. A backstabbing friend would pretend he or she cares about you then purposely continues to carry actions that he or she knows would hurt you. You don’t need such friends in your life.
2. THE PESSIMISTIC FRIEND
You don’t need a friend that always predicts doom and expects only bad outcomes. Such friends are kill-joy and should stay far from you. A pessimistic friend would complain about everything and never has a bright attitude. Such people are really infectious so hanging out with them could make you become pessimistic too. Do away with pessimistic friends.
3. THE FRIEND WHO GOSSIPS
Avoid having friends that gossip. A friend who gives you stories of others would also take your story to other people too. A person who gossips tries to always make others look bad. Your reputation is definitely at stake if you move around with a gossip because they would definitely paint you bad too just as they paint others bad. Avoid such friends.
4. THE FRIEND WHO ENVIES
A friend who feels discontented at your success shouldn’t be called a friend. A good friend should be happy about your success and not envy your success. A friend who plays down your success is no friend and should be gotten rid of.
5. THE FRIEND WHO IS ALWAYS THE VICTIM
I know you must have that one friend who never takes responsibilities for their mistakes. Everyone is always responsible for their tragedies. None of their tragedies are their fault. You really don’t need such people in your life. You need friends who are responsible and not friends who think the whole world is against them.
