Relationships are arguably the most important part of life. Our experience is influenced, impacted by, and shaped by our interactions with other people. The development of our minds and souls depend on the people we surround ourselves with in this life.
There are many different friend archetypes that seem to be universal in the human journey, and these archetypes appear over and over in our lives. For example, there is the friend that is the good listener. The friend that always sees the bright side. The friend that is never afraid to tell you the truth. The list goes on and on. But for every beneficial archetypal personality , there is also a negative archetypal personality that we have to keep an eye out for.
There are certain ‘types’ of people that are simply not meant to be welcomed into your energy field if you want to live a happy life. If you want to make the most of this life, surround yourself with people who add positive value to you.
Please pay attention to these types of people we are going to discuss, as this could save you a lot of bad experiences.
Here are 3 types of people you should avoid in life:
1) The manipulator
This type of person is very deceptive, and is deceptive enough to trick you into thinking that they are not deceptive. For some reason, something about them smells foul energetically, but they put on such a convincing front that you often suppress your better judgment. Their goal is to weasel their way into your life, earn your trust, and then use you for whatever it is they may want.
Maybe it’s your money, sex, your popularity, or maybe they just get off on having someone wrapped around their finger. The key here is to trust your intuition. If someone smells foul, there is usually a good reason for that.
2) The bully
This one speaks for itself. This person gains a weird kind of fulfillment from watching other people suffer. By belittling others, they enhance their own sense of self-worth and validate their own superiority. People are only bullies if they are suffering inside in some way or another. If they can make others feel bad, they feel less bad about their own lives.
The key here is to not take anything they do or say personally. The battle they are fighting is with themselves, not with you.
3) The ego-maniac
This is the person that only hangs out with you in-so-far as it contributes to their own self-image. They want to be seen in the eyes of others as having a certain level of appeal, and if they think that hanging out with you will help enhance their social identity, then they will never leave your side. Until, that is, they decide that being in a relationship with you no longer serves your ego.
They aren’t really interested in friendship. They are interested in increasing their self-identity through you.
Love yourself enough to not allow these kinds of people into your life. Your intuition the compass that helps you navigate and make decisions in life. If your internal bullsh*t meter is going off the charts, don’t ignore those feelings. Step away, and pursue relationships which suit you and serve you. Life is too short to be spent with people who don’t deserve your time and energy.
