Frienemy Test

1.  Affirm the Friendship: 

"Hey Johnny, you’re my friend."

2.  Say It Like it is: 

"You’re excluding and gossiping about me."

3.  Tell them how you feel: 

"That makes me feel awful."

How they respond to your frienemy test tells you whether they are your friend. If they apologize and change, then they're your friend. If they say you're being sensitive and get mad at you they are not your friend. 

How to deal with a "Frienemy"

Are they my friend? 

Are they my enemy? 

​Answer: "I have no idea!"

Frenemies are hard to figure out, sometimes they act like friends. Sometimes they do really mean things. Sometimes they try to have power over you like a bully.
