Friend Filter: 5 Types of Friend You Should Ditch Now

Other than our family, our friends are supposed to be the people who encourages us and makes us feel loved. But if your friends aren’t treating your right way, and are making you feel bad about yourself, then it might be time to cut your connections with them. Here, we’ve listed five types of friends that you shouldn’t have in your life.

  1. Friends Who Are Apathetic

It’s difficult to be around someone who’s incapable of showing sympathy for someone else, especially a person who’s supposed to be important. Friends are supposed to be there for you to lean on for support whenever you have problems, but if that’s not the case, might as well reconsider your relationship with the person.

Not having sympathy is a sign that the person doesn’t care at all. People who are apathetic are often too selfish to care about people other than themselves. These types of people are not the ones you should consider calling a friend.

  1. Friends Who Judge You

We all do weird things, and your friends should be right next to you doing the same weird thing. Being friends means being comfortable with each other, and not being able to feel that way when you’re with a friend means that they aren’t truly your friends.

They are the people who you can be yourself with, without the fear of being judged. You’re supposed to be fun and silly around them, not be always on guard because you fear that they might judge you for your actions.

  1. Friends Who Bad-Mouth You

Anybody who said that they haven’t said bad things about their friends are lying. That said, there’s a great difference between bad-mouthing someone and just sharing about something that happened. If the person is really your friend, then they wouldn’t go to someone else to talk about you.

All of our friends have done something that we don’t like, and that’s inevitable. But if your friend is being mean to you, or is always gossiping about your life, then you need to rethink your friendship.

  1. Friends Who Are Manipulative

There are people who knows exactly what to say and do to get whatever they want. Although these people make excellent lawyers, it doesn’t mean that they’ll also make great friends. A true friend will never try manipulating you just to get what they want.

Manipulative people are the best con artists. They’ll make you believe that they really care about you until they get what they want from you. These people aren’t afraid to use anyone just to help themselves.

  1. Friends Who Don’t Put Any Effort to Your Friendship

A true friend is someone who wants to spend some time talking and hanging out with you, and puts the same amount of effort into your friendship the way you do. They won’t ignore or blow you off for someone who’s more important in their eyes. If a person wants to be in your life then he or she will make it happen.

Despite being one of the best things that you can have in life, finding true friends can be quite challenging. So start sorting through your friendships now, and just stick with those who make you feel better about yourself.

Common Misconceptions of Grown-ups about Youngsters    

 

You think you know everything because you are old but you have to give younger generations due credit. Yes, they still need to prove their selves and it is not always a smooth journey but it doesn’t give you the right to criticize and make assumptions about them based on whatever you see.

Young generations these days are being stereotyped. Many people think of younger generations as miserable, fearless, bold and selfish. You have to know that stereotyping is not good and not necessary true. You have to believe that younger generations are capable of setting things right.

In a study, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett from Clark University created the “emerging adulthood”. When you hear it, it refers to a period between ages eighteen and twenty nine. He found out that grown-ups oftentimes misinterpret emerging adults. Grown-ups think of the following about “emerging adults”:

  • Emerging adults are depressed and stressed: It is true that emerging adults feel depressed, anxious and stressed-out but not all the time. Even if that is the case, they still find the light and feel excited or enthusiastic about something. Sometimes, you envy their vigour and strength. The point here is emerging adults are not that depressed and stressed-out all the time.
  • Emerging adults are narcissistic and selfish: Older people often judge an emerging adult’s rapid switching of job as a sign of selfishness and laziness. Dr. Arnett doesn’t believe so. You may see this as an act of selfishness and hastiness but in truth, emerging adults are idealistic. If emerging adults are not happy, they would rather resign from their stable job than to get stuck to it even if it pays well.
  • Emerging adults are cynical about relationships: You cannot blame the dwindling of marriages to emerging adults because they are distrustful of its essence. Marriages break and that is not entirely the fault of emerging adults. The truth is, Dr. Arnett’s study revealed that emerging adults expect to have a marriage that will last a lifetime.    

This period in an individual’s life is critical and so the parents together with teachers should guide them. Life will not always be rainbows and butterflies. The important thing is as young as you are, you already know some realities.

Here in Singapore, emerging adults are the future so there is no reason to doubt them. They are capable of making decisions – whether good or bad, it can affect Singapore at the end of the day.
