Negative Friendship

You have always been their best girl friend and you’ve helped them every time they’ve asked. But why do you keep receiving the short end of the stick? When everything just doesn’t add up, it is time to discover and to establish whether it is time to walk away.

1.THE OPPORTUNIST

The one who never sees the bright side; they only see what’s in it for them. Their methods of manipulation to take advantage of your kindness and reap all the benefits.

2. ALWAYS THE VICTIM; NEVER THE VILLAIN

Taking responsibility for one’s own actions is a part of becoming a mature adult. She never does anything wrong, she is incapable of seeing her shortcomings. Irresponsible and will eventually turn the focus of her pity party toward you at anytime that you do not agree with her completely. I remember when I told my friend about her negative attitude and she did not take it. She even told some of her friends that I am acquainted with a different side of the story.

3. ME, ME, ME!

A friend who must remain the center of attention at all times. The truth is she is not confident and everyone likes her. She has extremely low self-esteem and wants the focus on her instead of you because she feels threatened by you. She constantly tells you that you like a cheap gal even if everybody tells you that you are more classier than her. Better to unload this toxic attention hoarder.

4. YOU’RE ALL MINE

A red flag implying clearly that she is a control freak. Your friend tries to take control over the amount of time you spend with others; time to steer clear of her. Break this cycle early on before it gets worse.

5. SUPERIORITY COMPLEX

They discuss your private details, especially your failures, with others in attempt to make themselves superior to you. In truth, they fear you and extremely jealous of your ability to be who you are.

6. THEY DON’T ACCEPT YOU!

A one-sided friendship where you feel smothered by negative commentaries and feel terrible about yourself. A negative friend will never accept you for who you are and constantly remind you of your flaws and will never admit that they’re not perfect, accept their own flaws and address them.

7. THE LACK OF GUMPTION

Toxic friends are incapable of standing up to similar friends. She will take on a passive attitude toward these friends when they do something negative to you as well. The entire reason that she remains your friend is because she can manipulate you. In truth, she’s highly submissive and is incapable of handling anyone who stands up for her. Show her that you do have gumption, and won’t be mistreated. I remember one time, I was arguing with my friend, she wanted to do all the stuff that she wants without asking for my opinion. When I stood up on her she was so mad at me that it almost ruin the entire trip.

8. YOU STILL EXIST?

Another sign of a one-sided friendship. You will never get a response but the moment she needs anything you’d better morph into a superhero. She needs to handle her responsibilities but doesn’t want to repay the favor.

9. THE QUEEN B

She is controlling and manipulative (all odds should be in her favor). She believes that she rules every aspect of your life and will deliberately cause drama for you to get what she wants. As I learned the hard way, these toxic friends will only bring you down to their level if you stick around. They will wreak havoc on your life and use you at every turn.

What are your tricks you utilized to rid yourself of a negative friend?

    I have a friend who is like this. I talked to her a couple of times face to face about it but she doesn’t even care until it came to a point when she was down (bad timing for me to say it) and I let everything out. She got so pissed that she even called me a traitor for not telling it to her face. I was like what??? Long story short, we apologize to each other and we’re still friends. We rarely talk to each other now after that.
