Finding a Fake and Letting it Go

Published January 4, 2016

Acquaintances

Friendship is one of the most important things in your life. It is something that you should never take for granted. If you are lucky enough to have even one or two close friends, you should consider yourself lucky. Unfortunately, there are some fake friends who are only out to disappoint you. It is not your fault that you are attracting such people into your life, but there are ways that you can move on from it without allowing it to change your life for good.

Identifying Fake Friends

The best thing that you can do before you allow someone into your life is to try to identify them as a fake friend before you let them get too close. A fake friend typically makes you feel guilty when you cannot socialize them or use you for something such as money or a nice car. True friends like you for who you are and do not care about material things. There are some false friends that only socialize with you in order to make them feel better about themselves. This is just as bad. A true friend understands your perks and your flaws and accepts you for all of them. They don’t use them against you or as a reason to or to not be around you.

It will take some practice in order to pick out the fakes in current group of friends but once you are able to determine the good from the bad, you will be able to develop better and more meaningful relationships on a long-term basis.

Getting Over It

The most important thing you can do when you spot a phony friend is to get over the disappointment as quickly as possible. Cherish the good friends you do have and try not to focus on the negativity in your life. If you focus on the positive people that surround you, the bad eggs tend to drift away pretty quickly with very little harm done. If you allow those negative people to have a big impact on you then they will do just that. Don’t give the that kind of credit. Move forward with your life with positive energy and leave all the fake friends behind. It can be quite disappointing at first, but once you most past it you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Acquaintances come and they go, but true friends stick around for a long time. Anybody who is not a true friend needs to take their bad intentions and try them on someone else. Keep the positivity in your life and you will begin to open your heart up to new friendships that you may never have imagined.
