Having a great friend group is one of the best things you can have in this life. Experiences can become that much more enjoyable if you have a circle that supports you and shares in your successes. But everyone is not so lucky to have a genuine group of friends to lean on. Some may not have any friends at all. Others have to endure what may even be a worse fate than having no friends: having friends that don’t actually support them at all. It can sometimes be hard to tell if you have so called “fake” friends, but it is a sad reality for many people. These kinds of friends do not show support because, in many cases, they are secretly jealous of anyone who is better off than them. What is interesting about jealous friends is that many of them continue friendships with the people they are envious of. Experts have discovered that this may be the cause because, more often than not, people are ashamed to admit to others, or even themselves, that they are jealous. This leaves you having to figure out for yourself where your friends’ loyalties lie. Do you know if your friends really have your back? Check out these 6 signs that your friends are jealous of you.
They are always competing with you.
Healthy competition amongst friends can be a good thing, driving each person to have high standards and achieve together. But an obsession with always one upping you can cross the line into jealousy, which is always toxic.
They think life in general is unfair.
People who have a “woe is me” attitude towards life are likely to take less accountability for themselves and what they are doing to achieve their own dreams. They think that life is unfair, and that circumstances are conspiring against them at every turn. With an attitude like that, they are likely to view your achievements as unfair and undeserving as well.
