Friendships are one of the best things in life. They are literally midway between a sibling relationship and a romantic one and embody qualities of both.
As a matter of fact, you say things like “my brother is my best friend” or “my husband is my best friend”, to show what the bond means to you.
But like everything in life, there are exceptions. In this case, fake friends, who coincidentally also have a Biblical proverb named after them: Job’s friend.
So, here are nine behaviours that these friends of Job exhibit.
1. They try to change the person you are
Remember the plastics from Mean Girls? That’s what I mean. These fake people try to mould you into something you are not, just because it suits their purpose.
2. They are envious
Because they just want to learn how you do it, and “get the hell out of Munich”. They are jealous and all they want from you is your success.
3. They take it out on you
All their frustration and all their rage, they take out on you. You are their scapegoat. Besides, they just walk over you when it suits them, and they lick your feet when they need something from you. These guys are the worst.
4. They are there for themselves
And despite their promises to you, they will leave as soon as they have wrung you dry.
5. They will lash out
When you call them out on their bullshit. They can’t bear to have themselves being dragged in the mud. This is because after you, many such prospective easy “friends” are lined up to be exploited. If they get air of the allegations you bring against them, that’s it.
6. They do not celebrate when you succeed
Because they are burning with jealousy and wishing it was them up there and not you.
7. They demand
But never give back the same, whatever it is.
8. Promises don’t mean shit to them
Because they know from beforehand that you aren’t going to be the one that they will be hanging out with in a few months.
9. They play victims
When you call them out on their bullshit.
Stay away for your own good.
