Perhaps Not Everyone Is Truly Trying To Help You!


I once had a ‘pal’ who would sabotage opportunities whilst telling me how much they wanted my success.

What they were saying with their mouth did not match the chaos and distraction they would create every time I needed to concentrate on something that would push me further up the ladder and perhaps further away from them.

How ‘Bout Choo?

Got any of your own personal examples of the image above?

If this happened to you what would you do about it?

Let me know below and we’ll sob silently together across the blogosphere…

  1. Yep, I had a friend that routinely tried to hold me back. The bad thing was that he denied it, or chose to pretend that he didn’t see it. It was part of his personality. I just learned not to give him the opportunity.

    1. Yeah, mine too! But of course few are going to admit it unless you catch them in an impassioned outburst and it all comes out as mine did!
      You are right too Freds that it’s up to us not to allow in-roads to these people.

  2. I’m in the fortunate situation of not being aware of anyone knowingly doing that to me.
    That is just nasty behaviour. Why are people mean when being nice can be so much more fun and enjoyable.

  3. It’s difficult isn’t it. You want to believe the best of people, especially a friend, but time and again their actions suggest that they’re not really a good friend. I have had friends like that and I hate confrontation so I took the cowards way out and just spent less and less time with them until they moved on to someone else. I know, I’m a coward.

    1. I don’t think withdrawing makes you a coward. Sometimes its best to quietly get such people out of your life. You don’t need the extra stress of confrontation… Such persons will end up playing the misunderstood victim part.
