Are Your Friends Holding You Back In Life?

Having good friends is something most people can't live without. These people will be the ones who always have your back and a phone number that you can call at any time of day or night. A friend can keep you from making mistakes and help you avoid negative situations that would make your life a living hell. That's true friendship, and it's one of the most important things in life.

We've all had the experience of being around a friend who's so nice and friendly, you just want to be around them all the time. They're always there to comfort you when you're feeling down, and they make sure you have fun no matter what. But they're not necessarily good for much else. They make you feel bad about yourself, they don't encourage you to do better in school or work, and they don't help you get ahead in your career.

This can be frustrating because we know that the people we surround ourselves with affect us profoundly but often we don't realize how much until it's too late. There are a lot of things in life that seem to be out of our control. The weather, for example, is something we can't really predict or control. But there are other things that are within our power to influence and one of those things is the people in our lives.

We all have friends: people whom we care about and who care about us, who we enjoy spending time with, and who make us laugh and feel good about ourselves. But what happens when those friends aren't supportive? What if they're holding you back? What if they're bringing you down?

The answer might surprise you: it's not their fault. It's not just them; it's everyone around them too and if you want to succeed in life, then it's time for you to take a look at your own behavior and think about how it affects others around you. It doesn't matter if someone has always been there for you, it doesn't matter if they've been by your side through thick and thin, it matters only how they act now that they're no longer there with you (or how they act while they're still around).

The fact is; if you want to be successful in life, it's important that you surround yourself with people who will make your life better. These people might be friends, coworkers, or even clients but they need to be supportive of your goals and ambitions. And if they aren't? Well, there are a lot of ways to find them out:

You might notice that your friend is always coming up with excuses not to do anything productive all day except going to parties, goofing around, and playing video games all the time or maybe they have a tendency towards self-centeredness and narcissism; or maybe they just don't seem interested in doing anything but hanging out on social media all day long.

These are just some examples of how these types of people can hold you back from being successful in life. So what should we do? How can we fix this problem if we want to become successful in life? Well, there's a simple solution: surround yourself with positive people who will help push your limits forward! simple enough, isn't it?

Conclusion

Life is all about balance, and sometimes we have to make a tough call on what we want more in life. A future that is full of success and happiness can be hard to come by, but it's a worthwhile journey, especially when you have the support of good, close friends. Sometimes all we need is someone to help us find our way.

This article was inspired by the above picture which I got from a YouTube video about motivational pictures. I just took a screenshot and decided to write about it, someone out there might get a wake-up call from this. So, sit back and ask yourself these questions; do I have a circle or a cage? Am I surrounded by people who inspire me to be the best version of myself? If the answer is no, then it's probably time to look for a new circle.

Thanks for reading 💖💖💖

This article is correct I remember in school to submit assignments, if my close friends are not ready to submit I won't...I will wait, so I try to choose smart friends

Sometimes, what we need is a tough sacrifice for something better we want in life. It is important we surround ourselves with positive people who have similar goals as ours, who will be happy to lift us up and not one who keeps giving the excuse for not being productive and not being able to meet up in life.

Some people don't even realize that their friends are holding them back, they just keep on catching cruise instead of doing something productive to make sure they have a successful future

Thank you! In one way or the other, we all need people around to encourage or motivates us to do better but most times, these people (friends) are hard to come by.

I think that's the reason I have less friends now, I better be with people that will push me to go and grind than people that will pin me down with unnecessary talks

Exactly o. I have met a lot of friends like that, all they want to do all day is to just gist and catch cruise, dem full university. If you keep hanging with them, you will end up wasting precious time

While I'm reading this kushyzee I missed my close friends all of a sudden but now I noticed that everything's change. The closeness we have are now slowly fading. 🥺

Sometimes we start becoming less close with our friends, especially if they don't have the same goals and dreams with us, it's perfectly normal 😉

Yes kushyzee I realized that it's the reality. It's normal. It happened most of the time with the friendship.

It's usually better to have no friends around than to have the wrong ones that will end up holding you back 😊
