Some friendly enemies are beautiful frienemies
Yearning to heal their own insecurities
Marking their paths with destruction and pain
Patiently waiting for their superiority to reign
Totally oblivious that, it is they who are untrue
Opportunities will arise to give you a clue
Make sure that frienemy is not blocking your view
So in the meantime, Living Free and Loving On Purpose is all we can do
Symptoms can be missed or dismissed. Depends on how you look at it. But, there are signs that tell us that we have friendly enemies in our midst. How can we tell such a thing? It is not easy because friendly enemies can be charming. It takes a certain personality trait to be able to pull this off successfully, and for that reason, it is best to identify them quickly.
What or who is a friendly enemy, you ask? Well, for starters, it is:
- the one who silently judges you.
- That one person that superior to you and your circumstances, but will want you to be on-call for them.
- When countless people tell they are not your ‘friend’
- The person who will date someone, who they ‘know’ is off-limits
- That person that lacks self-control (they are dangerous)
- That person who shares your secrets with others
- That person that is ‘overly’ excited about a situation, that doesn’t warrant such a reaction (working too hard)
I heard of a situation from a friend of mine, who is aware I am sharing their story, who had a friend that violated their friendship. The friendly enemy, for starters, dated a guy who was, one of the guys, who had previously sexually assaulted her friend. To make things interesting, after the frenemy found out, she continued seeing the guy. This may qualify as a frienemy. What do you think?
Another story of a frienemy that was speaking ill of her ‘friend’ and it got back to the friend. The interesting part is that the person that spoke on the conversation, felt guilty and wanted to come clean because they felt the frienemy crossed the line. It is important to point out that a source is just a middle person, was the frienemies friend, not the friend.
This was a case of gossiping gone wrong or right. What I told my friend was that, while it definitely sucks to have another that’s close to you judge you or disrespects your place in life. We have the power to choose how these scenarios affect us and our being. We have the final say if we give the power to the frienemy or just move on and let them have their opinions of us.
These are simply symptoms of the discomfort or insecurities in their own lives and has nothing to do with you. So, do not take others judgments of you seriously, unless they apply. And if they apply and you are still unhappy with the description, you have the power to change it.
The choice is yours on how you decide to live your life. Either you will continue to befriend frienemies or you will become a friend to yourself and decide that it is not easy to move from stranger to ‘friend.’
There is a process and first, we should start by choosing to #LiveFree and #LoveOnPurpose
