As you get older, it gets easier and easier to figure out who your real & fake friends are. We all have both, and if you think you don’t- you are in EXTREME denial.
The toughest thing about realizing and separating true friendships from fake friendships is that those you need to cut out of your life have most likely been in it for a long time.
I recently been taken back by how obvious certain “friends” in my life just don’t fit in it anymore. Have you ever sat back and noticed that you don’t belong in that type of friendship anymore? I certainly have.
At this point in my life, I don’t have time to sit around and talk about stupid shit for hours. I seriously get anxious. It’s time-wasting, it’s lowering my IQ. I could be home reading a book, writing a blog or working out. I could think of a million things I’d rather do than sit around with people who have nothing good to offer.
I also hate gossip. If you are my age, High School is long behind you. Also, if you don’t like something, say it to my face. I absolutely despise “friends” that talk shit behind your back. And guess what? It’s pretty obvious. So if you are one of those friends, just face the person you want to talk shit about and let them know how you really feel. Real friends tell it how it is to your face. Own it.
I’ve always been a fun, positive, self-motivating person. And once I saw that fading away is when I realized I needed to make some serious changes.
You should hang out with people who bring out the best in you, not ones that make you write a blog post about whom not to hang out with. haha! I am obviously making some serious changes and being extremely picky at those I choose to spend time with. I need friends that want the best for me, as I want the best for them. Friends that have big dreams and are willing to work hard for them, like I am. Friends that don’t have time to judge others, as they are too busy worried about their own lives and making their dreams come true. Positive, upbeat, motivating people who will add extreme value to my life. Call me selfish, but I from now on will not tolerate negativity in my life. I, from now on will have a squad that “goals” are made out of. Genuine, loving, fun, hardworking, caring people. Why? Because I never ask for what I can’t offer in return.
Spring cleaning is around the corner. Choose your friends wisely, as they are the biggest influences in your personality and life. With that being said, I also want to say I have some of the most amazing friends that I forever see in my life that bring out the best in me. Shout out to my ladies, you know who you are=*)
