Bye Felicia

Send a bad friend packing.

Your thoughts (86) Bye Felicia

Raise your hand if you’ve been through this. You do something amazing at school, like win a prize or get top marks. Everyone cheers for you, except for your friend. And it’s not the first time she does this. She never celebrates your success. She relies on you to cover her back but you can’t count on her to do anything for you or with you. When you make plans, she ditches you at the last minute. The list goes on. Here are more signs that your friendship could do with some communication and growing.

Shames you
She doubts you and spreads rumours about you. She doesn’t keep your secrets or celebrate your good news. If a friend does anything that gets in trouble or pressures you to do things you’re not comfortable with, it’s time to let them go.

Takes without giving
You do all the giving, she does all the taking. She borrows your clothes or uses your make up yet she refuses to let you use her stuff. #Sharing is caring.

Bullies you
If she uses your secrets to force you into doing things that are dangerous, uncomfortable or just wrong, it’s time to say ‘bye Felicia’.

Sometimes, we do things we know are wrong or hurtful. Other times, we do silly things because we don’t know that they are hurtful. This is why it’s important to learn to to apologise and to forgive people who wrong us. If you forgive your friend’s mistakes but she refuses to do the same for you, you don’t have a healthy friendship.
