A person may be pleasant in his or her outward appearance and even show a pleasant disposition when he or she is right in front of our very eyes. But every front has its rear.
Apparently our eyes are only able to view the front side of things, but not the back. And ever thought that someone, whom you have seen as pleasant from the front, could be horrid from behind?
Heard of back-stabbers? Yes, these are people who actually possess good qualities from the front view, but possess bad qualities and use them against you from your back. In this kind of situation, the only thing we can do is to always turn our back around and start being vigilant.
In actual fact, we have the power to distinguish between a sincere and genuine person and a backstabbing devious person.
A back-stabber would establish a friendship with you without any hard feelings being implanted inside their hearts. All goes well, until there comes a time when you have achieved a goal that he or she has yet to attained. That point in time will reveal all of his or her true colours.
In other words, that time will determine whether he or she established the friendship out of integrity and sincerity, or that the friendship was just a joke.
A back- stabber will begin to distant himself or herself from you, and after that find ways to bring you down. He or she may start off in a smaller scale at first, but as you achieve greater success, his or her jealousy and animosity will develop even further and you may never know what other bigger plans he or she can have to ‘battle’ against you behind your back.
Not only that, if you were to seek help from him or her, he or she would politely give thousands of excuses for not being able to help, when the truth is that he or she simply refuses to help.
A truthful and earnest person would never create any barrier between you and himself or herself. Regardless of whether you are more successful or not, he or she would share your joy and happiness, and would not bear any kind of hostility towards you. And of course, if you were to seek help, he or she would readily be there to help you.
Rather than being backstabbed, it is better to have someone to simply be upfront about his or her displeasures towards you, isn’t it? The same thing can be applied to the blogosphere.
If there is really something that one is not convinced about the other, he or she should express his or her honest opinions, and then work things out with the other. Yes, having to bear with someone’s harsh opinions is hard, but having to deal with someone’s backstabbing ways is even harder.
Therefore, to all our readers and bloggers, our advice to all of you is to be conscious about who your archenemies from behind are, and who your true friends are. Truth always prevails!
All you have to do is to stay alert, and beware of these sneaky back-stabbers.
