WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO DITCH FRIENDS?
Friendships can form bonds even stronger than that between family members. However, there comes a time when one decides to cut off toxic friends from their lives. It is an eventuality that many people have to face. Its a cycle of life.
But when do you know it is the right time to ditch these toxic friends? Here are some of the tell-tale signs.
•When friends do not add value to your life
We all have those friends who do not add any valuable input to our lives. Instead they drag you behind and in so doing, you may not realize your full potential. Kick them to the curb, you never know, it may be the best decision you’ll ever make.
•When they become disloyal
Loyalty is one of the greatest virtues appreciated in a friendship. It is a bond that bring people closer by developing a sense of trust. For instance when a friend breaks this trust either by doing shady things towards you, or talking behind your back kick them to the curb.
•Bad peer influence
This is another justifiable reason to ditch toxic friends. These ill-mannered people do nothing but add trouble to your life. Their cons out way their pros, so what’s the need to keeping such people around?
•Failure to stand with you through trying times
This is the ultimate test of friendship. A person who cannot stand with you in times of need is not truly your friend. A good friend will always be there to lend a helping hand. Be ready to cut off some friends if they abscond you during trying times, they are not worth keeping anyway.
•When they form a habit of Keeping ‘receipts’
A friend who keeps a record of your ‘wrong-doings’ is not worth keeping. Beware of warning signs for instance, such person unveiling intimate conversations, that are shared in confidence to the public whenever you have an altercation. Take this seriously, and ditch such a person before things turn for the worst.
