3 Types Of Friends You Might Need To Break Up With

August 10th, 2017

Don’t get us wrong, we love our gal pals. So much so we created an e-guide at Career Contessa that will help you build your ride or die girl gang. But not all of your friends are the best influences when it comes to your professional growth.

That’s not to say they wouldn’t throw you a killer bachelorette party or be there when you need a shoulder to cry on, but being aware of your friends’ priorities can help you look out for ways their behaviors are influencing your career.

We’re not telling you to ditch them because they don’t want to climb the corporate ladder as fast as you or don’t understand your startup life, but in order to reach your goals you may need to keep an eye on certain friendships.

    Cool I know one of them!

    The emotional one totally is worse, and yes, I have one of those who I dropped. Every time I suggested or recommended something positive and useful, the person came up with a negative argument. Enough…..

  3. Emotional vampires are real! I had a friend who always made me feel worse after I talked to him. It took me a while to come to terms with the toxicity of the relationship, but I feel so much better now that we rarely talk!
