How to Deal With Friends That Use and Lie to You
Friendship is that one bond in everyone’s life that is the most important one after familial ties, after our parents and siblings, the people who understand us the most are our friends, and most of the times we are able to tell them things that we cannot tell anyone else.
Good friends are capable of being your best confidante, support as well as guide however it’s not always that we are lucky enough to get the perfect friends whom we want.
There are people who pose as your friends, and come near you only when they need you, and once you are of no use they leave you. So, to help you deal with such friends who use you and lie to you, we have for you a few pointers that will help you pull through such situations and people.
The first thing that you can do is to take a good look at your friends and your group, you can try to figure out whether all your friends are like that or there are few people only. If there are lesser people then you can talk to other people about what you think and try to get a consensus, and take further preventive steps to avoid such people.
It may be time for you to look out for other friends, though the task may seem to be one that might see to be problematic earlier but you need to move on, for the greater good of all since you would not want to be around such people for long.
Do not pay heed to their jibes, when they are trying to pull you down. Nothing would give them more pleasure than to see you fall, rather you should focus on the things that matter and are important, like trying to attain what you have been striving for.
Try talking to people who are less popular in the group, and try to build rapport with them, once you are able to do that, you will slowly and steadily climb up the hierarchical ladder.
Try to mix with other people too. You can try to invite them for a get together, or try to exchange numbers or email ids. Before you know it you’ll have new friends that you can spend time with.
Another thing that you should keep in mind is the fact that when you do find new friends do not try to snub it in the face of your other friends, it may actually backfire as they may try to sabotage your new friendships. Be gracious about having new friends and try to make a gradual transition rather than an abrupt exit.
The most important thing that you need to keep in mind is that you should not ignore people who are in the lower social order than you as that makes you much like the friends that you are trying to leave behind. Once you go through the aforementioned steps you will find it easier to be able to move on.
