People come in our lives, and they can just leave for different reasons. Some of them remain acquaintances. Some of them might become our life-long friends. And some become our colleagues, and others connect with us at a whole other level, which is a lot deeper.
Some of the we meet accidentally, some of them change our lives from the core and they inspire us to become better and better every day. Some just come in our lives to teach us a lesson, they break our hearts and then they leave.
There are those people also who are perfect at pretending to be our friends, they make it very difficult for somebody to determine whether they are fake or real friends.
These people are usually hiding behind them ask of loyal and good friends, while they’re secretly rooting and wanting us to fail. But, even though the show they put is pretty convincing, it is not always hard to see the difference between a real and a fake friend.
How’s that? Well, its quite simple.
A fake friend never could and never will do what a real friend does, no matter how hard they try.
1. Real Friends Keep in Touch
They just want to know what’s happening in our life. Because they really care about us. Something that a fake friend just can’t fake. When somebody just doesn’t like your, but pretends that is your friend, you can feel it. You can feel the way they communicate with your, and how they share things with you. A real friend can call to hear your voice only. But a fake friend, the only reason they can call you is if they are asking for a favor.
2. They’re Very Careful With Our Secrets
A real friend is never going to betray you by sharing your deepest secret with someone else. They will never do something to break the trust you have in them. However, fake friends will promise you that your secrets are totally safe, and later they will tell everybody they know.
3. They Always Have Time For Us
Real friends are people that you can always count on, even if they don’t have free time and they’re busy. The one thing that’s easier to discover a fake friend from a real friend is the time they spend with you. A fake friend is not going to be there for you when you need some support or help. The only time a fake friend is going to be around is to celebrate your success, because that’s the only way they can take advantage of you.
4. They Accept and Love You For Who You Truly Are
They love the messy and flawed you, as much as they love the perfect you. Real friends know the way we breathe and how our hearts beat. They also know our bad sides and mistakes, and all of our demons. But they love us anyway. Something that fake friend will never be able to do.
5. They Unconditionally Encourage You and Support You Every Step of the Way
IF real friends are always by your side to pick you up when you don’t have the strength to get up, fake friends will do the opposite. They will discourage you, push you down further and will make you feel like you’re worthless. It’s really not very hard to make a difference. It is all about how the people in your life will make you feel. If you start to notice that you are losing your sense of self and strength, you need to reevaluate your friendships.
After all, life is what you make it! So why not make it a good one?
