A healthy friendship should complement your life. It should add value and bring out the best in you. Most people succeed in life thanks to their friends. If you have a true friend, you are sure to grow because he/she will be that one person to point out your errors and advice you on what to do. When a friendship is lacking in these aspects, it is considered unhealthy or selfish etc. It is better to be an island than to be surrounded by betrayers or false and selfish people. You have as much right to drop the bad ones as you do in keeping the good ones.
Raise an eye brow if you notice any of these in someone you call a friend.
You give and never receive
When you find yourself always on the giving side and never on the receiving side, you know there is a problem. A true friend will share the little they have with you, no matter how small it is.
Never calls or check on you.
If you find yourself always doing the calling and checking, raise an alarm because that is a red flag. A true friend will make out time to check on you. Don’t buy the excuse of “no time” because we all make time for the things that are important to us.
Praises you on everything.
A true friend defends you in public and when in private, they will point out your error. A bad friend talks about you behind your back and even calls you names but infront of you they sing your praises. If you have a friend who never sees anything wrong with you, hit on the STOP button because he/she is fake.
Never confides in you.
True friends confide in each other. If someone is your friend and you find yourself confiding in them but they never confide in you, see that as a red flag. You stand a risk of being betrayed tomorrow.
Calls you only in times of need.
If you have a friend who only reaches out to you when in need of something, you should raise an eyebrow because such a person is not a true friend. You should beware of such friendship.
Your friend doesn’t like hanging out with you.
A true friend wants you to be a part of their life and is proud to tell the world about it. If you have a friend who doesn’t invite you at all, beware because it only means two things-they are either not comfortable with people seeing them with you, or they are not comfortable with you around.
