8 Types of Fake Friends You Need to Avoid at All Costs

Fake friends will turn you into a person you’re not, and you will find it hard to believe that you’ve changed because they have you wrapped around their fingers. Fake friends will like you only if you do what’s good for them. They like the expectation of you to become someone that can be of help to them; to them, you’re just a tool, an object they can use as they please.

Fake friends wouldn’t want to know more about you so they only pick one or two trivial, fun facts about you and persuade you that they already know everything there is to know. If you’re not vigilant enough, they can control your thoughts, your choices, and your other relationships in life. They can be very shady manipulators that will hit you in a place you’re not expecting, and it would be a rough life the longer you are attached to them.

How to Confront Someone When You're Not Confrontational

Conflict is inevitable, even if you make it your life’s goal to please everyone you meet. There will always come a time when we’re made to talk about a problem that we wished the other person would just forget. When this time comes, you have to be mentally and emotionally prepared for what you might receive and what you might accidentally say with your bottled emotions.

Being a confrontational type of person doesn’t necessarily mean you are a negative person who’s always looking to argue. It reflects how you conduct yourself around people with differing views. Being confrontational means you actively prioritize your mental well-being by looking out for yourself. When you confront someone, that courage to go face to face with that person speaks about what you tolerate and what you don’t anymore (especially when it’s triggered by your past).
