At some point in our lives, we have all encountered two faced-people. They are generally referred to as “Back-stabbers” and usually characterized by pretense.
Two-faced people are people who pretend to care about you, people who pretend to be your friend, but inwardly, they are filled with envy, jealousy, and hate towards you. They are deceitful, self-centered and insensitive. Two-faced people are also characterized by insecurity. They are manipulative and have no genuine friends, but possess a chameleon-like ability to fit in with others.
One of the best ways to deal with two-faced people is to acknowledge their existence and bear in mind that every person is capable of showing one face at one time and another face at another time. With this mindset, you can face every person with a combination of friendliness, and caution. It is best to stay on your guard when dealing with two-faced people because they are always afraid of your strengths, loosing you, or being able to gain favors from you, thereby demeaning you.
If you have no other choice than to spend time with a two-faced person, set your boundaries around them. In other words, guard your conversations with such persons. Do not disclose any personal or sensitive information about yourself or another person. Avoid sharing secrets with them, because a two-faced person gathers information as a weapon against you or other people.
Learn to detect the signs of a two-faced person as soon as possible in any relationship so you can be able to nip these acts in the bud. Trust your gut in every relationship, if you believe someone around you is two-faced, watch the person closely, withhold any form of trust and do not rely on such person for anything.
