Beware of “friends” who…

…only call you when THEY need something.

…only come around when they want something.

…are extra friendly only when they need to meet their MLM (multilevel marketing) bonus for that month.

…who only leave or send their kids to your house but never or rarely have your kids at theirs.

…are super active on social media, comment on all posts but always, almost always are “never online” when you post something.

…are so fast to comment or connect with you when they hear bad news but never good news.

…were your best friend all quarantine but all of a sudden they got super busy.

…want to see you do good but never better than them.

…talk so much shit about others behind their back. They are doing the same to you behind your back.

…constantly inquire about your life but rarely ever share anything about themselves .

…you haven’t talked to in years but now they started a new business and want to “reconnect.”

…only talk about themselves and never ask you “how you are doing?”

…you can’t even yourself around.

…constantly ask your opinion about their choices or situation, but never take your advice.

…come into your life and try to befriend you solely to suit another’s purpose.

…are followers and are afraid to speak their truth. Always agree with everyone.

…always come to your parties but never invite you to theirs. 


It’s really important to categorize your friendships.

The few true friends.

The acquaintances.

The social bunch, and so forth.

Having trust and confidence in your good friends is super important. A true friendship means you are able to count on one another. But it’s okay to have mini friends and boundaries too. Have expectations for that type of friendship and don’t take anything more or less.

Whatever you choose, don’t be a fool. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect no matter the relationship.

The end.

  1. Great post! The older I get I tend to have less real friends for this very reason.
