Did you ever feel like a friend of yours was not happy for your achievements or was never supportive enough?
If you feel like you are the only one who is putting efforts in the relationship and being there for your friend and none of that is reciprocated? Then it’s a sign that you’re not in a healthy friendship.
Having a small group of genuine friends and people who care about you is so much better than having a huge group of friends just for the sake of having friends who do not even wish for your well being.
Now how do you know when you are friends with a snake, I mean, a toxic person?
You are completely dependent on their opinion of you to feel good about yourself. They put you down to such an extent that their validation is what matters the most to you.
So it is up to you to make sure that nobody else, but you can decide your worth and proud of who you are.
So find people who you can share things with, who are genuine and real but also are happy for your success and work and support you in becoming a better version of yourself. Be with people who make you feel positive and love you for the real you.
That friend who will always be happy for her friends.
