Finding True Friends
Slide 4 of 4
A moocher would not be there for us when things started getting tough. This is because moochers are not real friends and they do not truly care about us. All moochers want is our time, energy, and possessions. A moocher always leeches off of you and uses you for their own means. A true friend would never imagine doing this to you.
If you have moochers in your life, it is time to walk away from their manipulation, abuse, and control. Always be kind to them, but do not trust them with your finances and energy, and do not allow them to steer your decisions any longer. While it is possible for a moocher to change, it is easy for them to go back to their old ways. It is best to stay away from moochers and to distance yourself from them.
You will discover life is much better without a moocher controlling your every move. It will be freeing and empowering to restore sanity to your life. Do not procrastinate or put off the problem. Address the moocher (with honesty and decency) in your life and distance yourself from them. The more time and energy you pour into them, the more time, energy, and happiness you will lose from your life. Find true friends and leave the moochers behind.
As adults, it's tricky to find true friends. It's not as easy as finding a pal on the playground or budding up with the girl who sits beside you in math class. Life is more intricate, more real, for adults, and so are friendships. As you pray to God about sending loyal friends into your life, I encourage you to seek them out too. Look for friends in God-honoring places like small groups, community volunteer programs, and the places you value in life.
