hey sector goers first things first we
would like to give you a big thank you
for all the love and support you've
given us if you find this video helpful
please give this video a thumbs up and
share it with your friends now let's
begin in this journey called life you
will not only meet good friends who are
always there to support you encourage
you and want the best for you in your
life but also toxic ones along the way
who only perceive you as an opportunity
for their own personal gain these
friendships will affect you physically
mentally and emotionally so how do we
differentiate between a real friend and
a toxic friend here are four differences
between good friends and toxic friends 1
good friends protect you when you're
vulnerable a good friend will take care
of you when you need to be cared for and
supported do you have a friend who
protects you when you're at your lowest
point in life or listens to you with
empathy and provides emotional safety
and reassurance when you went through a
bad day good friends are typically good
listeners they wouldn't mind listening
to you event for hours and generally
care about your well-being because they
genuinely missed you and loved your
presence around them toxic friends only
take demand a lot and give little back
on the other hand toxic friends look out
for only themselves and measure their
friendships by what they can gain from
you do you know anyone who's always
calculating when it comes to helping you
out even when you've helped them many
times whenever they help you out they
always expect something in return
they might even guilt trip you when
you're unable to help them truth is the
decisions and actions of a toxic friend
are mostly made based on fear and ego
two good friends are trustworthy and
accept you for who you are good friends
are true from the bottom of their hearts
they'll share their secrets while
protecting yours do you have a friend
who confides in you because they trust
you and you would do the same for them
when you're in pain physically mentally
or emotionally they won't back away
during times when you isolate yourself
to a harmful degree they make sure
you're okay and they're there for you
they're the kind
friends that are easygoing as they're
not judgmental of who you are you don't
have to hide your truth because they
accept you for who you are toxic friends
give praises to your face and stab you
in the back these people are known as
two-faced friends they can say nice
things right in front of you but behind
you it's a whole different story that
could blow your mind they have a habit
of gossiping behind your back without
your knowledge everything they say to
you is sugar-coated they're dishonest
and only say things that you want to
hear and this becomes a problem because
they won't stop you from making
regretful decisions even when they're
aware of the consequences toxic friends
often have a weak morale for example
even when things go wrong they show you
not to take ownership of your
wrongdoings 3 good friends are mature
and responsible good friends guide you
on the right path they listen earnestly
to you and try to understand where
you're coming from the conversations you
have with them can be real deep to find
out whether someone is a good friend ask
yourself do they often respond when you
talk to them about your problems are
they patient and empathetic or are they
bored and indifferent toxic friends are
reckless and immature
these friends recklessly involve you in
situations that make you uncomfortable
and regret later on such as getting
drunk in an unsafe environment or
putting you in situations where you need
to always lie to others sound familiar
if so how do you plan to get out of this
situation it's good to be aware and
recognize the signs as early as possible
if not you'll have an even harder time
trying to get out of this loophole
because you're Jiminy Cricket is lost
somewhere and lastly good friends are
compassionate with you and others their
understanding and caring for example
when you are stressed or struggling to
cope with your mental health they become
supportive and follow your pace of
getting better this type of friend is
rare to find because usually everyone
else rushes you to recover as soon as
possible when sharing your success and
Happiness they congratulate and
celebrate with you when you're grieving
about a loss they'll be there for you
good friends do
only defend your name when you're not
around but also encourage others of your
good qualities toxic friends give you
false hope and impressions they talk the
talk but don't walk the walk in other
words they often make promises they
can't keep
have you ever met someone who always
boasts about their past good deeds or
achievements if yes don't take her for
granted even if they add in between
apologies for seeming braggy to spot a
toxic friend like this try asking for a
similar favor or a promise they made in
the past and see how they respond do
they back out on you by giving excuses
or do they follow through with what they
initially preached do any of these
points mentioned above remind you of
do you have more good friends or toxic
friends in your life or do you identify
with being a good friend or a toxic
friend remember no one is perfect what
matters is we learn and we become a
better version of ourselves if you have
a friend who is affecting your life in a
negative way what do you plan to do next
