Backbiting
Lousy people have a special habit, they will be very sweet on your face and completely different behind your back, it is quite difficult to catch such people because they are very clever. But if you somehow get to know for sure that your so-called friend is spreading lies or rumors about you or just generally trash-talking, then one thing is certain that he is not your friend.

Note– Sometimes we make our mind by looking at the personality of another person that he must be talking nonsense about us, our notion could be right, and sometimes it can also be wrong, so before arriving at any decision, a little research must be done.

 

Repetitious behavior-
If your friend once insulted or hurt you and in return, you ignore or forgive his mistake considering him childish or naive, but if he continues to behave in the same way, that’s a big red flag. After all, how long will you forgive too, everything has a limit. Instead of tolerating such friends, it is wiser to part your ways from them. Marilyn Monroe once quoted, “It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone – so far.”

 

No apologies-
It has often been seen that true friends always take care of your feelings and if by mistake they hurt your feelings, then they come from the front and ask for forgiveness without hesitation, in their eyes your importance is much more than their ego. On the other hand, some people never accept their mistakes instead of apologizing they make you feel like you have done something wrong to them, we need to be careful with such people.
