One Fake Friend can Do More Damage than Five Enemies

In the journey of life, we will make many friends. Some friends will stay by your side till the last breath, while others would wither away with time. Friends play a vital role in life because it is they who would be with you in tough times and show you light when all you can see is darkness. Having true friends by your side is a blessing, and if you have good friends, you’ll know exactly what I mean. However, there are many people out there who pretend to be a friend but are secretly jealous of you. If you relate to this sentence, you already know what I mean. 

When you have true friends by your side, it is just comforting on its own even if you are not talking or doing just anything. The ability to converse even in complete silence is what you can practice only with real friends. However, not everyone today is lucky to have true friends by their side. Most of the people around us today are acquaintances at best, and while some may call you their friend, the moment you ask for any help that falls out of their comfort zone, they decline without thinking twice. Don’t they?

When you know who your opponent is, one thing you are certain about is that he is not your friend. However, when one of your friends is secretly against you, hates you, or is the envy of you, he can cause more damage than an enemy. It is because a friend is one with whom you have not only shared your strength but also your weaknesses. A fake friend is one who wouldn’t think twice before exploiting your weaknesses and instead of lending you strength during challenging times, he may just part ways with you to join your opponent. It is why it is rightly said that instead of having too many friends, just have the few who you know means you well and are true to you.

Friends are the ones who you can count on during tough times, but what good are fake friends who instead of lending you shoulder to lean on may just pull you down further? Be selective as to whom you share your feelings and secrets as not everyone deserves to know your secrets and true feelings. A fake friend is one who would know your secrets and then backstab you when you least expect it. You cannot bank upon your fake friend to be there when you need him the most, and it is why it is necessary to have few friends, but those friends who you trust and know won’t backstab you.

Many people change with time, and even friends can too. If you feel a cold attitude coming from any of your friends or if you are getting negative vibes from any of your friends, do try to first rectify the issue before thinking ahead. Many friendships fall apart with time, and it is okay. Accept things the way they are because not everything can be fixed. When a broken friendship is fixed, it is never the same. The worst part is that you can never trust a friend who has broken your trust once in the past. 

Be vigilant of people around you and see who means you well. More than the words, it is the actions that would help you decipher the true intentions of the people. If actions speak differently than words of any of your friends, it might be time to keep a safe distance. Many so-called friends may be jealous of your happy life, lovely family, success, and so on. The onus is you to safeguard your interest and part ways with people who are two-faceted and have malicious intentions for you.
