10 Differences Between Good Friends and Toxic Friends

October 10, 2019

We all know the phrase a friend in need is [a] friend indeed But did you know the difference between good friends and toxic friends? Well? We all have that one friend Who’s bad-tempered a little jealous and somewhat conceited? Do you think he or she is a true friend [to] you? Let’s see today We’ve got 10 major differences between good friends and toxic friends that you should consider and don’t forget to hit that [thumbs] up button Because it’s important for us number 1 good friends celebrate your success They’re really happy with your promotion at work your new relationships or even your new shiny car They’ll be the first to call you and say hey well done Congratulations. Let’s go out and celebrate. They’re always very proud of you toxic friends get jealous of your achievements even your smallest Achievements enrage them they cannot put up with the idea that someone’s [business] is going well They can like your photos on Instagram, but when you meet them in person. It’s easy to notice. They’re jealous of you It’s literally written on their faces number two good friends know the importance of your alone time Sometimes we all can’t stand the hustle and bustle of big cities, so we need our private time spend this time on meditating thinking reading good books or walking our true friends understand this and Never get offended even if we cancel weekend plans with them Toxic friends try to occupy all your time. They’re like spiders They literally need all your time and attention They easily get offended when you want to spend some time alone and complain about you to others You always feel guilty when [you] say no to them Number three good friends are caring and empathetic [they] say wow you look great even if you have bed hair and are wearing a [rubble] t-shirt They never judge your appearance, and they always know how to cheer you up toxic friends judge and criticize you oh Where’d you get that weird hat you look terrible they never miss an opportunity [to] point out your shortcomings even the smallest ones They hide behind the phrase I just want to help you, but they don’t help at all. They make you feel awkward And uncomfortable number four good friends respect you and value your friendship You’re a very important person for them So they know how to argue without being personal also, if something goes wrong when you travel together, they’ll just laugh at all the troubles Toxic friends lose their tempers easily they can even shout at you in front of other friends or in public If something goes wrong or not according to their plan they lose their temper very quickly and become a monster number five good friends enjoy exchanging opinions [they’re] interested in your opinion and always listen [to] you if they disagree with you. I’ll express it in the mildest form toxic friends only want to win an argument They hardly reckon with your opinion because they think that only they are right and they try to prove it by any means number six good friends believe your words well of course They won’t believe you if you say you’re moving to mars next weekend But they usually believe all your stories when you tell them something interesting for instance from documentaries. They believe every word Toxic friends doubt everything you say, they’re like Are you sure? I think it’s better than ask google. No matter what you say they always want to double-check Number seven good friends, call you because they miss you. How was your day is everything okay? If you miss your class or work, they’ll be the first to call to ask whether you’re [alright] They miss you, and they worry about you Toxic friends find you only when they need your help hey, can you pick me up right now? Help me with my work walk. My dog. No come on world friends Numberings good friends except you the way you are Even if you wear all bright colors together sing on the streets or spend all your weekends riding a canoe They appreciate your wings They don’t care they love you Toxic friends try to change and control you they always say something like what’s better for you is or you have to try this They find it hard to reconcile themselves with your lifestyle. Let’s be honest their advice is so Number nine good friends know that everyone has their friends, and they won’t judge you for that They might even become good friends with your other friends if you introduce them to each other if not They’ll still respect the fact that you like to spend time with your other friends and colleagues Toxic friends don’t like your other friends remember they’re like spiders They don’t want to share you with other people and even with your family. They always want to be the center of your life number 10 good friends know how to keep a secret If you tell them please don’t tell anyone they’ll take it seriously don’t worry your secrets won’t fly around the world Toxic friends say things they shouldn’t say and they always add I shouldn’t have told you this if your friend tells you other secrets it means he or she would spread your secrets as well Just avoid their company gossip is not the best pastime so Have you recognized some of your friends?

  • Reply 에리스elise August 30, 2019 at 6:25 am

    ok this probably has nothing to do with this video, but when i was like ten, i was at a pool party thing with my four friends (including my friends lil sis so its five) and all of us were on three floaties (huge flamingo, big cupcake, donut-looking one).. except for me.

    i had to connect the three floaties, and its like 90 kg on each one (bc we each weighed abt 30 kg) and i only had two crummy arms..


    yeah ok and then one of my friends (lets call her riley even tho thats not her real name) told me to hold her goggles while she went on a floatie. okay, easy enough, right?


    an hour passed by, and riley asked me,

    “sorry d00d but where did u put ma goggles?”
    “oh im holding them why?”


    “omg i will trust you the most from now on how were you still holding them for an hour-”

    btw, i was in the top 3 people she hated. i was the third one.

    edit: also my friends dont allow me to have other friends.

    Friend.. a guy in school that i belived as my only friend, I really don't have many friends due to my disability to speak german well amd because I am not fully but somewhere around introvert and I try to have good friends with good influence over my life.. So that I can make them happy too, and that toxic friend was in class and looked at my clothes and shoes noticeable, and then quickly popped out a question that he held back moments before finishing it ,,Why do you have so much cheap stu— I mean I got more expen-'' Then he stopped looked at me and continued our typical conversation, at that point I knew it was time to cut friendship with him. So what you have to learn:

    Stay safe, don't hesitate to double check who you are becomimg friends with, amd without bein toxic, back off from those who are bad and generally waste you mentally and physiclaly, and your time.
    Have a nice day! ☺

    I felt like a toxic friend because

    I told my one friend that you need to brush your hair a bit better because you will cry the next day when you try to brush it. And I said that because I seen her every week like that and he hair was brushed but the center of the head is very very sticked in to one big ball of hair. I said that because I had my hair like that before.

    Next is I don't like being with all my friends at the time I want only with one friend who came over. I think I'm scared she will run away and leave me and I will be used like a toy (I'm scared because I was left too many times by that one friend who I'm friends with. Why? I don't know why tho.) They we're trashing about me behind my back)I'm scared to lose a friend that's why I always want to be with only one at that day…I only believe my BFF because she never leaves me..

    I'm ashamed of my self…

  • Reply Andrew Bradley September 27, 2019 at 11:20 pm

    I came here to clarify some doubts about my only supposed friend, I can't deny that I haven't had good times with him, we have things in common and he is really my only friend, the reason why I have no more friends or I can't make new friends is because of my Agoraphobia and some other conditions. I don't like to push my friend and make him feel that he must always comply with me but sometimes I feel that I'm only a leftover to him when he has nothing to do or with whom to speak, when I share something that it went well for me or I'm excited about something and I want his support he just makes fun of it and everything is a great joke with zero importance but when it's about him, I'm always there to listen to him, support him and try to always be aware of the evolution of his events.
    There was a moment in which I thought that he was moving away from me because of my way of being or how I live my life, I tried to change, to include myself in his likes and other friendships but it turned out badly, he began to share things that I had told him in secret and he simply didn't care and he tried to protect himself by saying that he told them just because I started talking about it, which never happened. My problems and experiences that I've had in my life made me get used to loneliness but I think that we will always want a friend to talk to and not feel excluded, judged or ignored and for what I watched in this video I officially don't have a true friend, I hope nobody is going through the same thing as me, also this comment is not to make you feel sorry for me or to be the center of attention, I just share it because if you have a friend in the same situation please try to help him and be faithful and not pretend, we don't want 30 friends or 1.000 friends, we only want a true friend, even if it's only one.
