As we all know, life is too short and we need to make the most out of our time on Earth. We need to hang out with people we love and people who love us back. We don’t get to choose our family, but we can choose our friends. Our family and friends are the emotional support we need and the first people we share happiness with. These people are worth it, and you should focus your full energy on them.
Toxic friends or family members, on the other hand, don’t deserve your love and attention. They are too needy and can stress you out beyond repair. Toxic friendships never last – they are fake, unsupporting, and not rewarding at all. In short, they’re the exact opposite of what a friendship should look like.
Why waste time and energy on people who don’t deserve it? In life, you need to learn what kind of people to avoid, and toxic friends are at the top of the list. Psychologists have even created a list of fake friends you should stay away from, and we have it right below.
Showoffs are annoying for several reasons. They usually brag about their achievements, but will never validate yours. They have the perfect life and yours can’t compare to theirs. Who needs these people in their lives?
Psychology has proven over and over again that complainers can be our doom. These people are simply too negative and that kind of energy can kill you. They are never satisfied and highly toxic, so you best keep your distance.
Just like complainers, naysayers are overly negative and unsupporting. They will validate a good idea you might have. As a matter of fact, they’re on a mission to destroy your hope. These people have too much negative aura and you should stay as far away from them as possible.
These people are very jealous of you and your life. They criticize every step you make and would love to see you fail. This gives them power over you. You don’t need them and their ever-questioning aura. Surround yourself with supportive and happy people and your life will take a positive turn.
Do you have friends that compliment you but always say bad things behind your back? Those are the ones you should stay away from. These fake friends don’t deserve your attention or love. Let them stay in your life and they will ruin it.
Breaking up with friends is never easy. It is, however, necessary if you want to stay sane. We won’t lie to you – it will be hard and not fun. However, as soon as you realize that this kind of relationship is hurting you, you should break it off to keep living the life you’ve always wanted.
Surround yourself with positive and happy people, not those who kill your vibe. After all, why should you suffer? Don’t waste your energy on fake friends – they don’t deserve a thread of your energy.
