When you make a new friend, you never expect them to turn around and totally change their personality on you. Even if you've been friends with the same person for years, you don't wake up every morning and think that this will be the day they finally show their true colors.

Friendship is supposed to be built on honesty and trust, above all else. But that doesn't mean that friendships always stay that way. Things change, and life is always making you take different twists and turns.


No matter how much you try to plan for your future, there will always be something that throws you off your path. Trust me, you can't plan for everything. One of those things you can't anticipate happening is losing a friend.

If we all knew that we'd lose touch with our friends in the future – some of them are BFFs we've known for years – we probably wouldn't spend so much time investing in friendships then, right? We could just pick and choose who we spent time with because we knew things were going to change anyway.

That's why, when someone you thought you knew finally showed their true colors, it's almost always a shock. Some zodiac signs are the best kinds of friends you can have; they're the ones who will always be there for you, through thick and thin.

Other horoscope signs don't see friendship as something that needs to be serious or long-term; they're the ones who would rather be on their own or only keep you around when it's convenient. It sucks, I know. But you can't expect everyone to be the same, right?

One day, the two of you are best friends; finishing each other's sentences and making plans for the weekend. The next, she has your phone number blocked and she's unfriended you on social media. How did THAT happen?!

You've been totally blindsided by your friend who is nothing but a complete stranger now, and now she's acting like she doesn't even know you. This is what it feels like to be stabbed in the back by someone you thought was your friend, but was really just using you. And as much as losing that toxic friendship hurts right now, it's the best thing that could happen to you.

Believe me, trying to repair a friendship after learning that they never even liked you in the first place is not worth it; all you're doing is wasting time on someone who doesn't care when you can use that time to heal from this heartbreak and find someone who does care about you.


And yes, losing a friend can break your heart. That's why, when someone stabs you in the back, it's important to do damage control before anything else. Cut out the toxic person in your life, focus on what you need right now, and surround yourself with people who actually care about you.

And the most important part of healing after a "friend" stabs you in the back is letting yourself be sad or upset or mad. Vent to your sister, eat some ice cream, cry, break something – as long as you let yourself feel how much this hurts, it'll help you get over it that much faster.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries can be a very good friend, but they also don’t like wasting their time with people who aren’t going to get them anywhere in life. They need a friend they have to keep up with, and if that isn’t you, then Aries will cut those ties really quick.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



Gemini is one of those people who will act like your friend one week, then hate you the next, then be your friend again the week after that. It’s exhausting to be around her sometimes because you never know which Gemini you’re gonna get. And the worst part? She’s sometimes the person who will tell everyone you’re still really close, even if the two of you just had a huge fight the other day.

Gemini is straight up two-faced, which makes sense seeing as she’s the twins of astrology. She knows she can be a hypocrite, too, but honestly, she doesn’t really care. She’ll be your friend when it makes her look good, but when someone is bad-mouthing you and telling her how lame you are, she’ll stab you in the back and agree with them.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is VERY unpredictable, so it’s not always easy to tell if she’s going to be your friend or if she’s turned on you. Scorpio has a hard time letting her guard down and trusting someone completely, so when she considers you a friend, she expects you to be there for her for life. She’s also quick to judgment, so if she thinks you’re not being a good friend to her, she’ll cut you out of her life before you have a chance to explain.

Scorpio has two ways of letting you know that your friendship is nothing more than a sham. Sometimes, she won’t even wait until you’re caught off guard – she’ll stab you in the front, not the back so that you know she’s done with you. Other times, she’ll lay low and pretend that you’re still friends until she can get a chance to really stab you in the back and prove that you mean nothing to her.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is one of those people who can really crush your spirit after she stabs you in the back. When you first get to know her and build a bond together, she’s a terrific friend. It’s only when she starts ignoring your texts and lying to get out of making plans with you that you’ll realize things are way off. And then one day, she’s talking about her BFF and posting pics to Instagram… and it isn’t you.

Pisces will sometimes make (fake) friends out of convenience. If she’s the new girl at work and doesn’t want to eat lunch alone, she’ll make nice with you. If you seem friendly at yoga class, she’ll set up her mat next to you. But after she’s confident enough to find her own friends and move away from you – her “practice” friend – it’s a giant stab in the back.
