If you have unsupportive friends, they’ll frequently get in the way of your success. They’ll make you feel like you have to choose between them and your goals. What’s more, sometimes they’ll drag you down, making it harder for you to achieve your goals.
Of course, if you do decide to change things, they might not be happy about it. But if they’re truly your friends, they’ll understand why you need to make changes — even if they don’t like them.
We are going to give you some tips on how to deal with unsupportive friends.
It is important to consider if you want to keep this person in your life. It is important to have people in your life that build you up, and not tear you down. If you truly want this person in your life, the next step is setting boundaries for the relationship.
You need to let them know what type of behavior is acceptable around you and what isn’t. This is hard to do because when you say something like this it often makes the other person defensive and resentful. You can’t control how they react, but you can control how you handle it. If they react badly or don’t follow your guidance, then consider letting them go completely out of your life if they are toxic to you.
