The above linked article talks about friends that you don’t need. These are generally people who have been with you in the past, but your needs haven’t grown at the same rate.
If you have friends like these, maybe you should consider new friends to take with you into the future.
- The Complainer
- The Naysayer
- The Doubter
- The Bragger
- The Flaker
