7 Types of friends to avoid.

In life we all need someone to be there for us at some point in our lives — that’s why we have friends.

However, not all friends are actually friends. Here are 7 types of friends you need to avoid if you want a happier life.

If you are a private person and you don’t want stories of you all over the place, it’s best to avoid such people. The gossip will take your story to the end of the world. Such a person is like a camera — capturing
every move just to expose it to the world. In some cases, they create stories in their heads and spread such information as “truth”. Avoid such a person like a plague.

The Everlasting Complainer/Begger

7 types of friends to avoid: The complaining begger

This type of friend is one who has the habit of always begging and complaining about all the woes in their lives. Such friends are like leeches. They only receive. These ones never take responsibilities for their actions — they always blame it on life. They complain like they are the only ones with life issues. They are never contended with what they have. Such a friend will drain you.

The Wild Friend

The Wild friend

The wild friend is the one that pushes boundaries. One that will both make and encourage you to make bad decisions in the name of fun. Should anything go wrong, they bail on you and turn against you. If you want to be happy, do yourself a favour — run away from such.
