We live in this world where there is competition in every little thing or evil intentions behind every good deed. It’s getting more and more difficult to trust people because almost everyone is good to your face, but many may not be good behind your back. These are called two-faced people or fake people. In this Quotabulary post, we have compiled some quotes about them.
Dealing with a Two-faced Person!
When you know that a certain person is like this, first accept it and know that he/she is never going to be an honest friend. Try not getting angry and aggressive, instead just confront them and tell them that you don’t like their behavior. Also, avoid sharing any personal information with them. Last but not the least, do not take it to your heart and don’t think about playing the same game with them.
Two-faced people are the ones who act like your best friend around you but are ready to back-stab you anytime. They may behave very sweetly with you, but the moment you turn your back, they will be the opposite. They may say bad things about you and spread rumors. Having them around can make life difficult.
You cannot afford to trust them or tell them about your aspirations, and there’s no point expecting any honesty from such people. They will be selfish, and most often, deceive you. Understand that they are just not worthy of your friendship. Ignore them and move on with your life! And make sure that you never become one of them.
Here is a compilation of some great quotes which you will be able to relate to, if you have come across fake people in your life.
