8 types of girlfriends everyone girl should ditch

I’m one that generally likes to focus on the positive. So often we hear that women are catty and they can’t work together, or some women will say they don’t have female friends for that reason (how is that possible?). That’s why I wrote 8 Types of Girlfriends Every Woman Should Have. I’m blessed with an abundance of true die-hard girlfriends. They have my back no matter what and they know I have theirs. But recently, I had a conversation with one of my good girlfriends that ended with me telling her to ditch that “friend’ of hers.

When it comes to living the life we want, we have to be willing to let go of the things and people that no longer serve us. If something is stressing you more than blessing you, it’s time to let it go. It’s not for you.

So here are 8 Types of Girlfriends Every Woman Should Ditch:

We all know this “friend”. When things are going amazing for you, she’s right there to cheer you on and keep you encouraged. She sings praises about you and is there when you call. But when things aren’t so great, she’s MIA, ghost, nowhere to be found. Seriously, ditch her.

    These are great. I’d like also add Paranoid Portia. That friend who is paranoid about every. single. thing. You strike up a conversation about her date…She assumes you’re trying to get deets on the guy for yourself. You compliment her handbag, she won’t tell you where she got it cause she thinks you’ll copy…You’re talking to another friend about something random, and she assumes the conversation is about her and gets defensive. You go out with another friend and she finds out that she wasn’t invited, and she gets mad and thinks folks were talking about her during their time…She’s always talking about her boss/coworker/mailman/grocery store clerk about how they purposely did stuff against her because of some weird reason…Tiring…

    Love this article, I’ve definitely seen and experienced first hand some of these ‘friends’. Thankfully, some of them leave your life of their own free will. Amen to that! 🙂

    This is on point! I like to pat myself on the back for choosing true friends wisely and associates…well, I just know who to keep in my inner circle. I had one situation with a Jealous Jade. That heifer acted a FOOL at my bachelorette party, stank at my wedding, didn’t even show up for my grad school graduation OR the after- party because she dropped out of her program. I finally had to cut her off when I got preggo and she really showed out. Jealousy kills. Everyone gets to their goals in their own time and I think being able to rejoice with people who have met their goals is an aspect of a healthy self-worth. Yes, she was broken, but it wasn’t my job to fix her. I had to detach…I did. I have no regrets, but I’ve had several co-dependent people in my life, usually I just stop responding to the antics and our relationship can improve on some terms, with her, I had to let her ALL THE WAY GO. It wasn’t worth it.

    “Yes, she was broken, but it wasn’t my job to fix her” Yes AZesq this is so true. And I think too often we try to do that in some relationships because we don’t want to let them go. But good for you for protecting your space and not allowing negative energy to drain you.

Have you ever been in the company of a couple who just radiated love? It’s usually easy to tell they are in the happily married category. Either they are all over each other physically and the attraction is obvious. Or their communication is so on point it’s clear they have a meaningful connection. I love seeing couples who are in love and not afraid to show it. Unfortunately, too often we get to experience the heartache and negativity that comes from failed relationships. It is a must that we also get to witness real love at its best.

The happily married isn’t an anomaly, it actually does exist. If you aren’t quite sure, here are 10 behaviors, in my opinion, that illuminate the idea of being happily married.

1. Speak positively about your spouse.

You speak positively about your spouse, especially when they aren’t present. One of the highest forms of flattery, is that even when you have nothing to prove or gain, you still have positive affirmations to share about your partner.
