Your bad friend can like your photos on social media but when you meet them, it’s easy to notice that they are a little jealous.

They usually don’t like to have a conversation with you. If they are having a conversation they just wanna end that up quickly.

 What gonna happened if you said anything and they didn’t like it? They’ll start criticism.

 Bad friends only wanna win an argument. They hardly reckon with your opinion because they think that only they are right and they try to prove it by any means.

If they disagree with you in any opinion they may not express it or they’ll express it with anger and disrespect. A bad friend doubts everything you say.

They are like ” Are you sure? It’s better to ask google”. No matter what you say, they will double check it. Because they don’t believe your words.

What should we do after recognizing?

None of us loves losing a friend, and a few people deserve another opportunity. Your companion may not know that their conduct troubles you. It may be worth conversing with them and building up some solid limits:

° Tell them when their behavior is unwanted and unacceptable.

° Say ‘no’ when your friend asks for something that makes you feel uncomfortable.

° Point out to them when they’re acting mean or being critical of you.

° Talk to them about how their behavior makes you feel.

° It’s alright to reveal to them that on the off chance that they aren’t willing to treat you better, at that point it may be ideal in the event that you went separate ways.

Ending Friendship

On the off chance that the means you’ve taken don’t enhance things, at that point it may be a great opportunity to pull the fitting:

° Take a seat with your friend and clarify decently well that the friendship isn’t solid.

° Do whatever it takes not to blame them or to influence them to feel awful.

° Rather, disclose to them how the time you go through with them influences you to feel. It’s not possible for anyone to ever remove your sentiments from you.

° Tune in to their perspective and do whatever it takes not to contend with them.

° In the event that both of you gets irate, smoothly expel yourself from the circumstance.

° End the discussion as affably as possible, for their prosperity and yours.
