13 Types Of Friends You Keep That Ruins Your Life

When it comes to matters of friendship, I always say that you’d rather get yourself a puppy than hang around fake friends.
No. Really…a puppy will not suddenly wake up and decide “Ugh! I don’t wanna hang out with you anymore.”
Here are types of friends you should ditch immediately!
1. The ticks
These are friends that’re only your friend for their own convenience. They want to be given a ride in your car, or live in your house, be fed, be entertained and live off you. When you stop providing for them, they ghost out on you. Oh hunni , you certainly don’t need ticks in your life!
2. The liars
These are the inconsistent kind of friends. You don’t exactly know what they do for a living or where they live because the stories they tell are so inconsistent. They are always lying about everything! Ugh! Bye Felicia!
3. The competitors
Theses ones are the ones always in a competition! You get pregnant, you find out that they’re knocked up too! You move out, they move out too! You buy a new car, they do the same. Like…chill the f*ck out! These friends want to be better than you and they just don’t get the concept of friendship. At the end of the day, we all have different paths in life no need for competition.
4. The jealous friends
The jealous friends will see you move from grass to grace and not comment or at least congratulate you. These are the kind that follow you on Instagram or Facebook and all they do is lurk and sneer! Bitter bitter souls!
5. The overly dramatic ratchet friends
You go out clubbing and they start unnecessary drama, throwing drinks at people and acting like they are filming for some ratchet reality TV show clapping hands like demons shouting “I’ll remove that stupid wig, come at me bitch!” LOL. You don’t need ratchet friends. Keep it classy boo!
6. The flaky friends
You make plans and these so called friends always cancel on you at last minute.
7. The violent friends
The kind that are always ready to throw a punch or two. Hanging around such friends can get you arrested or involved in a court case. You might want to check your clique and re-evaluate your life!
8. The back stabbers
The kind that go around gossiping you behind your back. These are the wolves in sheep clothing and you should be very weary!
9. The ones your mama warned you about
The kind of friends that are a bad influence. These friends will introduce you to sponsors, drugs, theft, prostitution and all other sorts of bad vices in the name of ‘that’s what cool kids do’. You will certainly not look or feel like a cool kid while you rot in jail.
10. The emotionally drained
These friends only call you to talk about their problems; they never ask you how you’re holding up…no. They don’t give two shits! They call you and rant about their boyfriends, family issues and all that like you’re a therapist. Friends should be there for one another, to offer a lending hand if need be but when it’s one sided, that’s not friendship.
11. The seasonal friends
These are the on and off friends. They have different cliques and will only hang out with you when it convenient for them. You’re that last option plan for them.
12. The naysayers
They are so negative about everything! The kind that you share a business plan with and they tell you “This idea can’t work in this country”. You definitely don’t need such negative energy around you. You need to be around friends that want the best for you and are genuinely happy to see you succeed.
13. The too broke/ too rich friends
The too broke friends are always borrowing money without refunding. You’re not the U.N. It reaches a point where the too broke friends become way too much and you start feeling like you actually have a big baby instead of a friend. The way too rich friends on the other hand will expect you to join them in expensive clubs, restaurants, vacations and trips and if you’re really struggling to keep up with the rich kids of Instagram, why not hang out with people in your league? Hmm…stick to your lane darling. There’s no traffic when you’re on your own
