Life is too short to have toxic friends. It may be difficult to recognize, but these friends will use any opportunity to take advantage of you, and then make you take the slack for it. Here are the three types of people to keep your distance from.
It’s normal to ask your friends for favors or borrow things, but The Leech takes this to another level. The Leach will take whatever they want from you, at any time they want without considering your feelings or respecting your items. They will never extend the same generosity to you, however, and you shouldn’t expect to ever get your stuff back either.
The Blamer will do just that: blame. They will never take responsibility for their actions, and will instead point the finger at you or someone else. The scariest thing about The Blamer is that they can make their arguments very convincing. They may be good at playing the victim, but don’t give in. It’s not your job to bear the burden of their mistakes.
The “No Drama” Drama Queen
The “No Drama” Drama Queen will claim ’til the end of time that they hate drama–-and yet, they are always at the center of it. This toxic friend feeds off of attention and will formulate complicated schemes to make it so. You may find this friend flirting with your S/O, and then claiming that they didn’t start it. Or you may find them gossiping about literally anyone and everyone. People who have to constantly make themselves the center of attention are clear members of this category, and if you think they are saying things about you behind your back, they probably are. Stay away.
