A manipulative selfish friend who is always looking out to get as much as she/he can from you, but never offering to help you in anyway; or doesnt give a damn about your business, is your best friend. I appreciate the fact that it may be hard to keep that kind of friend in your midst especially if you are an honest person, but consider the following good stuff that you can gain from such a relationship.
- Selfish people are usually overly confident. Benchmark some of your friend's confident attributes and learn from them.
- If you don't love yourself enough to know what is right or wrong for you, a selfish person will use you until you learn to respect yourself enough to stand up for yourself. The good in this, is that you will eventually get tired of their crap and set some standards. At times it takes such characters to elicit one to love him/herself.
- Hanging around these guys will teach you how to communicate calmly under anger generating situations. Since selfish people are very annoiying, dealing with them on a regular basis strengthens one's ability to remain calm under pressure. Of course it is a choice, and a process at the same time. However, nevertheless, it is worth the pain.
Therefore, embrace your selfish friends and be grateful for the life lessons they are soliciting for you, and moreover free of charge.
