There are some amongst us, whom are like two-way mirrors.  In the light they depict quality traits and characteristics; but in the dark – yes, in the dark they are likened to the evils of many horror films.

They are always looming; always awaiting your very demise! 

They smile that “genuine” smile.  They pretend to be happy for you and your  successes and accomplishments.  In front of you, they have nothing but encouragement and praise.  Yet the minute your back is turned, defamation becomes their mother tongue – having nothing but unkind words to say.

When your mother used to say “be careful of wolves in sheep’s clothing” or “keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer”, these are precisely the folks she was referring to. 

Be on your guard.  Not everyone can or will be happy for you!  Many will be, but so many more will be jealous, envious, and resentful of you.

Take a look around – is your circle of friends truly a circle, or do they only add up to a half-moon?
