So many times people complain about their friends or wonder if their friend is a good friend but you have to look at yourself as well. Are YOU a good friend? Remember that saying “to have a friend you have to be one?” It is true. Your friends cannot constantly give and give to you with nothing in return. If you are constantly taking from your friends without giving anything back then you are what some consider an emotional vampire. Be an active listener, don’t just talk about yourself all the time. Any relationship must have give and take. No one wants to feel drained every time they are around you. Take responsibility for your own behavior. It’s not always someone else’s fault. It’s not always about you.
