Friend to Foe: 7 Things That Can Turn Your Bestie Into Your Worst Enemy

April 28, 2012 ‐ By Kariba Lang Williams

When you were kids, you guys probably promised to be friends forever. You weren’t aware of the obstacles ahead. Nothing could possibly break your timeless bond. Friendships are still relationships and if you don’t communicate your needs to one another, a break up is bound to occur.
Below is just a general list of some of things than tear a great friendship apart….

    luckily me and my bestie haven’t had these issues, if these were factors in the relationship then it wasnt that strong in the first place imo…

    Just make sure you check your chinese horoscope as well as western. I had a falling out with a good friend recently over like 3 or 4 of the reasons posted. zodiac called her my mortal enemy, in those words. rat vs horse. who knew!  also turns out my first love and now ex was a rat even tho western signs matched.  at the end of the day he was sneaky and so was she. And I love both their sneaky behinds but….. it would never work.

    friendships are as bad as relationships. We all gotta settle for mediocrity (cynical voice.)

     While this article hit one situation I went through with a ex bff on the head. We were friends since grade school all the way through high school and as we became women and got into serious relationships with men we eventually grew apart. I would tell her a lot about what goes on my relationship and she just got to involved in my personal life I had to leave her alone. That is the truth never tell your friends about your relationship problems.

    Okay this may sound weird. But I stop being friends with someone because my mom always compared us to one another. And I don’t mean in a good way. Like everything I did she would be like well so and so don’t do that, or you should try to be more like her. It was annoying and she would do it in front of my friend. I hated that, it made me feel like I was never good enough. Cause we could do the exact samething the exact sameway and she would still praise my friend more then me. And she took it straight to the head, cause she was also very attrative. But that didn’t matter to me, so tried to tell myself that all of this was in my head .But it wasn’t and that hurted the most, so I jus had to let her go.

    I’ve always made more money than my friend. I just became fed up with always paying for her. She went from saying “thank you” to expecting me to do it. We’re no longer friends. And I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

    Yes. This article couldn’t have come at a better time…recently had this discussion with my bestie, and things feel a lot better.

    I left a defriended someone because of #5. As we are both geminis, anyone who knows our nature knows we have a flight of ideas going on. I always supported her through her moments, from wanting to start a male modeling agency to starting a passion party. Well the minute I said I wanted to be in law enforcement, the bish tells me that I’m not cut out for that and “good luck with that”. I never talked to her again until I recently opened up a Facebook account and she requested me as a friend. She seen I was now married and then posts on my wall “oh your married now…hmm congrats” I just deleted her. I hate people like her, she’s one of them “I’m gonna make my first million by 40” type of people, no kids, barely have a man but hey, many blessing to her

    Wow all these signs just goes to show that friendship is hard to find and hard to keep. Don’t take your friends for granted after all its not always about ‘YOU’.

  • Please also add in Generosity. If I have money, and my friend wants something she would bring up the time last week, at popeyes, when it was raining, and I had on red sneakers, the time she bought me chicken wings. There is nothing worse then only giving to expect something in return. I honestly would rather you not get me anything at all, if you are going to keep score. And it’s not as if I am a stingy person, in fact im very giving, all the time, so the one time, I don’t want to share my food with you, or don’t want to lend you money, or ask you to chip into my gas fund. Please don’t pull out the list. It’s beyond rude. My friend used to do that, and I had to check her on it. Now we’re cool. But that used to bug the ish outta me.

    Lay all this on one page Mn
    how many times do we have to request this?

    • Ms. Spring

      MN doesn’t care about others’ opinions on how she does her website. She only cares about her own. Disgusting.
