Humans are social creatures who certainly need each other and in this case, of course we have to interact with other people. Interact with family, friends or even strangers. Well, in terms of friendship, have you ever heard the word toxic friend?

Toxic friend itself is a friendship that makes someone feel unsupported, always blamed, belittled, or even attacked and all kinds of other bad things. This can destroy many things, including destroying self-esteem. Having toxic friends will not provide any benefit for us.

If you have watched the movie Transformers: Age Of Extinction, there is a scene where the antagonist character named Lockdown says to his own friend, that the enemy of my enemy is my own friend. So it is appropriate that we must always be careful in choosing friendships in our daily lives.

The characteristics that you should know if your friend is toxi are as follows:

1. Keep the good news to yourself

Maybe we often hide our happiness like we have gained something from our own hard work. But it aims positively to avoid envy that may happen to friends in us.

Notice the little nudges we get emotionally, which make us pause before sharing the good news with a friend.

And if we hate bringing it up for fear that he will be condescending or make sharp comments, then why would we want this person to be a friend? Good friends should be invited to share any positive things that we get.

2. Tells you to prioritize him

Supporting and being by your friend's side when they're in trouble is a good thing, but that doesn't mean you have to put your friends first at all times. Toxic friend will tell you to immediately leave what you are doing and meet him immediately.

3. Just take advantage of you

If you have a friend who shows up when you need it, this is one of the common characteristics of a toxic friend. Toxic friends only accompany or even visit you when they need help, after that, they will leave and don't care about you.

4. Always be negative

Toxic friends will often be negative and feel dissatisfied with everything you do and feel that the life they live is full of injustice. In fact, he may project his negative attitude onto you by criticizing and never praising you.

5. Never acknowledge the achievements of his friends

Friends like this, usually too often tell about himself, and his own achievements. In fact, he doesn't even care about the achievements of friends or other people who he considers rivals.

6. Don't want to be blamed or playing victim

Friends like this usually have a very high ego. He always feels that his life is always hard and all his failures always blame his friends around him, not himself.

Those are some of the characteristics of a toxic friend, as much as possible get away from the scope of a toxic friendship because it will have a bad impact on yourself.

Toxic friends are not good. I agree to all that you've mentioned my friend. Toxic will never be happy with your achievements. Toxic can lead some danger too that's why we should be careful by choosing friends.

The case of toxic people existing in your life is inevitable. Sometimes even if you're true to yourself and being nice to others, they'll always do you bad even if you try to avoid them so much. Who's at fault here are the toxic people, they aren't just doing bad to others but also to themselves. They are not being true to their selves.

I completely agree with your opinion, the point is that we remain careful in choosing friends. Don't let what we are friends are actually enemies.

Toxic people are everywhere. But it is truly hard to accept that those whom you treated as a friend will give you that kind of toxicity until you suffocated and even lose yourself. They should be the ones that will let you freely and safely breathe in our world that is full of hatred, pain, and failure. Just always be careful in choosing people who should surround you that will help you grow as a great person.
