The hater, aka Debbie Downer

Sometimes it can take a little while to spot a hating “friend,” but if you pay close enough attention, you’ll eventually catch her in action. Does she give you sideways compliments? Always throwing shade and raining on your parade? While you were gloating about finally becoming a college graduate, did she find it necessary to dwell on how hard it is for college grads to land jobs in their related fields? Did she discuss the divorce rate after you announced that you were getting married? If you can’t think of a time where she has ever offered a sincere and kind word after you’ve shared big or important news to you, you’ve probably got a hater on your hands. People of this nature are also draining to be around after awhile. Life is too short to voluntarily be around those who make you unhappy.
