Fake friends. Who needs them, am I right?!
They’re the absolute worst. They add nothing to your life and if anything, they make your life worse. Their sole purpose is to bring you down and who needs that?
You can be fooled at first, but eventually everyone’s true colors come out. Sometimes it takes a certain scenario to bring that side of them to light but once you see the real them, drop them. It will only get worse from there because you’ll start to notice the falseness more and more.
We’ve all had our fair share of toxic and fair-weather friends. They’re surprisingly hard to let go of, especially if you’re the type of person who tries to find the good in everyone. Some people are just plain nasty and there’s nothing you can do to fix them.
When I finally dropped a fake friend last year that I had since fifth grade, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. All she did was bring me down. She was never happy for me and would always try to one-up me. All we ever talked about was her problems because she never cared about mine. I hit my limit, cut her off, and let me tell you something — I never looked back.
You’ll certainly learn a lot from a toxic friendship and be able to spot the signs to look for in said fake friends. If a “friendship” causes you stress and brings about low self esteem more than it’s making you happy, that person isn’t a real friend. Real friends are there for each other through good and bad times. Real friends will never ditch you for a better offer or say hurtful things to you to bring you down.
Real will always be better than fake!
I sometimes plan out in my head all of the things I would have said to her. These sassy quotes certainly capture how it feels to have fake friend, so send them her way!
