Make sure you get real with your friends!
Life has many up and downs and in order to get through it, you need to have the right people on your side. We all like having friends, well most of us, but do we really trust them? As this quote about friends says, we should worry about people who claim to have dozens of friends.
Often, we can count on one hand the number of true friends in our lives but it can take time for us to realize who are true friends really are. If you do find yourself surrounded by negative people who are bringing you down it is time to evaluate your friendships.
We often find out who are friends really are when we are in trouble or we are going through a difficult time. The friends who do support us in our time of need are the keepers and those who do not contact us when we need their support are not truly friends. In fact, there are some people who are only really friendly when they need something from us. It has to work two ways.
There are, of course, people who like to deceive and it can take some time to realize who they really are. Don’t worry, we have all been caught out by this.
What we all want to in life is to be happy and that means distancing ourselves from fake people who are only out for themselves. This may be difficult at first, especially if you have know these people for many years or they are family, but it will be worthwhile in the long run.
There will be times when distancing yourself from others is impossible. This could be because they are close family or they are friends of friends, for example. In this case you have two choices:either say something so that those people know that you have them sussed out and will not tolerate any more of their negative behavior or you can simply choose to bite your tongue and engage with them as little as possible.
Talking to others may feel like you are being overly assertive but we cannot be happy if others are making life unhappy for us. If some others don’t like what you are saying you simply need to at least your are being real, not like your fake friends.
The hard work does not stop here, you always need to be on the lookout for fake people as they are everywhere! You need to find your strength and carry on keeping it real!
