18 Wise Yiddish Sayings on Friendship

wise sayings for friends

Some friendships aren't meant to last a lifetime.

Ever dreaded hanging out with a friend you've known forever? You are not alone! Many of us have had at least one such friend who thinks that it is their moral duty to criticize us on what we wear, what we eat and even whom we date. These people make us feel like we’re always doing something wrong.

But when it comes to our actual needs from the friendship, they fail to deliver.

In fact, fake friends and people we are in toxic relationships with never seem to be there to lend an ear or say something nice to uplift us. Yet, it seems like they are the first one in the line when it comes to criticizing us.

Ask yourself, does your friend only call you when they need you? Maybe they’re having a bad day and want you to make them feel better. But do they reciprocate? Do they make you feel as if you're too needy? Do they constantly play victim and does everything have to revolve around them for them to feel content?

If being in the presence of your friend starts to give you anxiety, or you can feel like you've started to resent them for their unkindness and you're having trouble standing up for yourself and your own needs, it may be time to consider cutting ties and ending your friendship altogether. 

Toxic relationships like these with fake friends have the potential to actually become emotionally abusive and detrimental to your own mental health.

These fake friend quotes will get you thinking about everything that is wrong in your friendship. And maybe, just maybe, you will take that final step and say goodbye to that toxic relationship, once and for all.
