10 Types of Toxic Friends You Don't Need in Your Life

Everyone chooses a friend according to his own habits, perceptions and thoughts.

True and sincere friendship does not know jealousy, selfishness and other feelings that can bring unrest and discord.

Friendly love is selfless, mutual and never ending, because a friend is there to understand you when no one else can, and to respect and love you when no one else cares.

Many people pass through an ordinary person’s life, but only true friends leave a mark on his heart.

Sincere friendship is stronger than anything else. It is solid and indestructible.

However, some people have the misfortune of considering bad and toxic people as their friends, even though they are not.

Even if you have many friends, it does not mean that they are all good. Often you feel lonely and less worthy in their company simply because they are toxic.

Often you want to tell them good news, but you don’t because you know they don’t want to hear about it.

Whatever good thing happens to you, they will only be envious, and that spoils your joy.

Because they will not be proud of you at all, simply because they themselves may not be doing so well or have good news.

They will also always compete with you and if you tell them good news, they will tell theirs and completely outshine you.

On top of that, they also never listen to your stories, but mostly talk about themselves, and when you are having a conversation, they are constantly staring at their phone.

This is because they don’t care about you at all, constantly take advantage of you, and are selfish. They even cancel plans if they don’t like them, and leave you when someone better shows up.

If you want to do anything, they will also always find ways to make you feel guilty, because this is how they boost their self-confidence.

Such toxic friends can also exploit you just for advice and money and drain you completely.

So try to recognize them and remove them from your life, because they will only influence it negatively.

1. The Bitter Friend

A friend who is always bitter and always spreading negativity is truly poison for the soul.

Not only do these friends wear on you, but they also pull everyone else around them into a dark, depressive cloud.

With the mantra that if their life is falling apart, no one around them should be happy either.

Without actually trying to change their own lives for the better.

Which is very selfish, because they are also affecting others in a negative way.

Because you have to admit to yourself that every time you spend time with them, you feel very different because they are negatively affecting your happiness.

So think about talking to them, and if they change, maybe you two can even stay friends.

2. The Unsupportive Friend

It’s good that our friends have different opinions, and we should respect them, but if they influence us too much, it’s very negative.

Because it can’t be that they judge our every move and make us feel bad for wanting something.

For example, something as banal as wanting to dye your hair pink.

As if they were your parents or just to make you feel bad about yourself.

Friends should encourage you and make you feel good about yourself, not the other way around.

After all, what good is it to have them if they condemn your every move?

Equal encouragement is very welcome, otherwise you can do without it.

3. The Untrusted Friend

If you have a friend who is always late and only checks in with you once a year, why do you even consider them a friend?

Such people make you wait all the time, cancel plans, and even avoid you in favor of other friends.

This makes them extremely toxic, and when you realize they are avoiding you on purpose, don’t call them again.

These types of friends have stopped caring about you and are already bored with you.

It’s just that at one point in time, they seemed comfortable being friends with you.

That’s not the case now, and you should stop reaching out to them because you don’t need those kinds of people for your own growth.

In fact, they can only slow you down, and you will see along the way that you don’t need them at all.

4. The Sneaky Friend

Each of us has a friend who is a lamb in the skin of a wolf.

They support us in everything and give us the best advice possible, but do everything against us behind our backs.

For example, I had this one friend who I could tell anything to and confided in everything, but she always gossiped behind my back.

When she was with me, our friendship blossomed, but whenever she could, she talked against me and I didn’t notice.

That is, until I found out, just like another friend.

I would often tell her about a man I liked and talked to, and she would even give me advice on how to talk to him.

But all the while she was also talking to him and even made me think that they were talking about how great I was… which is just sick, this type of friend should be avoided at all costs.

5. The Jealous Friend

Your friends will always be jealous of you in some way, but everything has its limits.

So if you find that they can’t be happy for you at any time and even want something bad to happen to you, are they your friends at all?

Or are they more like traitors who hate you so much that they just have to be around to see you fall.

These types of friends can even get you to do something that they know will hurt you, and they can even give you false information to make you fail at something.

These types of friends are also most common during college when sharing information is valuable.

This is because they are the ones who might withhold information from you in order to sabotage you.

So if you notice them doing that, reconsider the friendship, you don’t need such people in your life.

6. The Draining Friend

Do you also have such friends who make you feel completely drained after spending time with them?

Either because they are very negative, complain all the time or are just not your kind of company.

Even if they are nice people, if you feel uncomfortable every time you meet them, maybe it’s time to part ways with them.

Because it just happens that you outgrow some people and conversations without wanting to return to them.

Because you want to protect your energy and precious time that you seem to be wasting with them.

Maybe before you part ways with them, you should also try telling them what kind of aura they give off.

And just in case they don’t change their behavior, break off contact with them completely.

7. The Chaotic Friend

The chaotic friend is one of the worst you can have, because they will only call for help when something really bad happens.

For example, when they need to borrow money because they just spent it all on gambling, or when they have problems in their relationship “again”.

So basically, they’re just using you as a free therapist and money lender and aren’t interested in spending time with you beyond that.

Why, you ask? Because they are toxic and because you always welcome them with open arms, and that’s why they keep coming back.

But what you need to understand is that they are not your friends, but rather leeches who just want to take advantage of your kindness.

At the same time, they keep in mind that you pity them and feel some kind of responsibility for them.

But you shouldn’t. They are adults and should stop using you and take their lives into their own hands.

8. The Friend Who Makes You Look Stupid

Has it ever happened to you that you have that one friend who makes you look stupid every chance they get.

Like they just get satisfaction out of embarrassing you, no matter how much they like you as a friend.

Since they themselves are frustrated by something in their life, they boost their ego and spirit by mentally abusing you.

This kind of disrespect is also more evident when you two are in a group.

Or with a third person with whom they can also make fun of you.

Therefore, they are extremely toxic friends that you should think twice before doing anything with them.

Because alone with you they behave in a certain way, but turn into the complete opposite when more people are around.

9. The ‘Judas’ Friend

We all had that one friend who betrayed us like Judas betrayed Jesus Christ.

So they were not toxic from the beginning, but turned out to be years later.

The worst part is that no one really saw the betrayal coming and it was totally unexpected.

Because this type of friend remains loyal and selfless for years, only to betray you over something trivial.

Maybe you just don’t fit into their cool friend group anymore, or maybe they’re just bored of you.

Either way, they remove you from their lives overnight, leaving you with severe trauma and trust issues.

Either way, if this has happened to you, don’t worry and let this person go, traitors should never be forgiven.

10. The Friend Who Has Feelings For You

This could be one of the most toxic friendships you can have, and many may not be aware that they are in one.

Furthermore, this type of friendship can occur in both same-sex and opposite-sex friendships, which therefore makes it even more common.

I myself have experienced both, and usually you can tell that someone is treating you very differently.

Also, they look at you like you’re more than just a friend and you can feel that right away.

At the same time, they are jealous of all your current love interests and other friends.

So you can easily tell that a friend is in love with you, as they only want you for yourself.

Therefore, you need to cut ties with them as soon as possible, as they want your hand if you give them a finger.
