3 Types Of People You Need In Your Life

In your life, you're bound to encounter numerous types of people. They may show up as friends, coworkers, neighbors, or family.

Other times, they may take on not so great manifestations, like bullies and harassers. No matter what the case, these are the 3 types of people you need to keep in your life.

1. Your opposite.

Opposites are liable for butting heads in a pretty severe way, but they can still be great to have in your path through life. They tend not to sugarcoat things and will call you out when you deserve it.

Think of this person as your counterbalance, the hot to your cold. They may show strength where you are weakest, and conversely, you may be strong when they are weak.

You may disagree on some things, but don't take it personally.

2. Your soul mate.

The soul mate is a whole new kind of friend. They're not always the one you fall in love with. Often times they're not even the sex you're inclined toward.

They're just people who feel like they're family, like a brother or sister. You meet them and it's like you've known each other forever.

Some say the atoms that make up soul mates were fused in the same stars. Others think you've lived previous lives and have reincarnated together.

You often mirror one another and are able to happily go through life with them. Keep them around. Do what it takes to stay their friend forever.

3. Your mentor.

One of the most important types of relationships is the mentor-pupil relationship. Mentors can be friends, they can be family, they can be teachers; they come in lots of different shapes and sizes.

The universe sends us many mentors through our lives. They're here to help inspire you on your journey.

Beware though, because the mentor relationship can go south if the mentor is unable to acknowledge that the pupil no longer needs mentoring.

This turns into more of a parasitic relationship than anything where the mentor is deriving something selfish from the relationship.

The Problem Is...

3 Ways To Identify And End Fake Relationships

I think we've all seen and been in fake relationships in the past.

These are relationships built around money, lust, and sometimes even just superficial emotional security - the people in it don't want to be alone!

I think the result of these kinds of relationships is that nasty 50% divorce rate you see in many places.

So how do we make sure we don't end up in fake relationships?

1. First, know the difference between being comfortable and real love.

For a lot of people, the reality is that they don't want to be alone. This is the first mistake in the fake relationship - the people in them haven't learned to love themselves yet.

Before you enter into a relationship, you need to be truly happy with yourself. You can't enter into love a broken person yourself.

Your partner will need you to be strong. Many times, we find ourselves in fake relationships just because it's comfortable.

It may be time to let it go. Learn how to keep your partner coming back for more, click here and watch this free video from relationship expert, Amy North.

2. Know that real love is selfless.

This is another important clue.

Love doesn't want anything. You aren't here to enhance the life of your partner and they aren't here to enhance your life either.

Love comes with no agenda, no goals, and doesn't treat anyone like a means to an end. Lovers don't think about ways to benefit from each other.

They just want to be with each other.

3. Know that most people aren't really in love.

When you're told that you're loved, oxytocin and serotonin flood the body almost immediately.

When you revisit this thought repeatedly, these chemicals are released again and again, even well after the event.

As a result, just the thought of being in love is awesome to us. But we're only thinking about being in love. Are we really?

You have to look hard at that idea. Your partner may say they love you, but do they act like they love you? Do they engage in the actions of real love?

Only you can tell for sure, but know that many people aren't really in love.
