Your Real Friends versus Fake Friends

Have you ever wondered who was your true friends and who was just using you? Did you second guess why someone was your friend only to see their true colors? I think all of us have been there. Here are my general ideas of what a fake friend will do.

A fake friend will

*talk about herself and not ask anything about you

* ask you for favors and when you ask in return, she/he does not come through

* will think that their needs and wants are more important than yours; selfish

* will put you in awkward situations and then apologize for it later

*wants negative things to happen for you

*will set limits

*unreliable and not dependable

Real friends are hard to come by. Some friends come and go. Some of them we lose touch with and there are simply some friends we grow apart them. Over the past 21 years, I have an idea what a genuine friend is.

A real friend will

* be there for you when you need a shoulder to cry on or assist you; selfless

* will think of your wants and needs

*will not put you in an awkward situation

* wants positive things to happen for you

*push you past your limits

*reliable and dependable

When you surround yourself with friends, think fo surrounding yourself with people who offer a positive and constructive atmosphere. You want friends who encourage you to be the best person you can be, not hinder your creative thoughts and ideas. A wise person once told me, ” the qualities you want in a friends signifies what type of person you would like to see yoruself with in the future.”

Assignment: If you’re interested, make a list of qualities you would like to have in a friend. These qualities reflect what you want in your significant other
