As the New Year sets upon us, it is a great time to review everything. Goals, targets, aims, life purpose and who we invite to share our time with us. It is true that we need to de-clutter from our contents to our hearts and this includes any toxicity that we may have inadvertently engendered along the way!
Relationships are an integral part of life, motivating you to follow your dreams and encouraging you to be a better person. It is important to choose your friends wisely, surround yourself with others who are true and kind.
The User is a fairweather friend, seemingly there for you, unless something better comes along. Someone who takes advantage until you have served your purpose, after which they will be gone.
The Negative friend who is never satisfied with anything. Much time is exhausted on whining and grumbling with dislikable opinions about almost everything. Invest your time and energy with those that can be happy for you and supportive. Life is always infinitely better with a smile and kindness.
The Drama Queen’s life is like one long soap opera filled with daily disappointments, letdowns, heartbreaks, and sadness. You are constantly acting as a problem solver but because they thrive on drama your advice will go unheeded whilst they plough on with their self-absorbed existence and not interested in you!
The Critic is mean and controlling directing little jabs and digs to you, often in front of others and passes comments off as “jokes.”
The gossip who is always in the know , spreading rumours and fuelling talk discussing your and everyone else’s issues!
The Leech always needs you and expects you to drop everything when called!
The Rebel seems adventurous and exciting, it is also very dangerous. This friend will surely get you into trouble. What’s more, the instability and unpredictability of this friend can be draining after a while always expecting you to right the wrongs they commit.
These are the main types of friends you really don’t need.
