Do you remember what it was like to feel jealous for the first time when your friends got recognition over you for doing the same thing? The rush of guilt suddenly rises in your chest as you think, “Why am I acting jealous to my friends? Aren’t I supposed to be happy for them?” Then you start thinking about your insecurities, and one of them is what a terrible friend you are. Well, if that feeling of envy is what makes you think you’re an awful friend, don’t beat up yourself too much.
Gossipmongers are the deliverers of drama into your life. They have a complex personality — they can seem like the best friend you ever had because they seem like good listeners especially during days when you badly need someone to talk to. What you don’t know is underneath all that shoulder-to-cry-on facade, they have unpleasant intentions. They listen to all your rants and secrets, swear to keep them, and gain your trust so they have the leverage against you.
We all meet people for a reason. Whether they’re a blessing or a curse depends on how quickly we realize their true intention or how gravely their impact on our lives. No matter how many times we avoid being in any way affiliated with people whom we know are not good for us, life will interfere and ruin all our efforts. There will always be a reason why you had to meet an asshole and probably be really good friends with him or why you had to lose the only best friend you had after graduating high school.
