SPOT THEM OUT! THE GENUINE FROM THE FAKE
How can we identify a fake friend, a false lover, or any other bogus person? How do you know if a person is really being nice to you or just taking advantage of you?
It’s important to know how to spot a fake person to avoid being deceived and hurt by someone who is pretending to be real and trustworthy but is actually just using you to further their selfish motives.
Although there are some fake people who may not cause you serious harm, there are others who might actually ruin your good name, family, business, and even your entire life.
To help you distinguish the two, here are 20 differences between fake and genuine people that you should know:
Genuine people are happy and thankful for your success; fake people are envious and bitter of your success.
Genuine people are excited about your success. They rejoice when you succeed because they support you to get success in the first place. On the other hand, fake people feel defeated when you achieve success. They envy you, they feel bitterness in their hearts, and they want to pull you down to discredit your success.
Genuine people sincerely feel your pain and sadness; fake people are pleased when you’re in pain and sadness.
Genuine people are compassionate. They feel your pain and suffering. They will worry about you. They will comfort you and cheer you up when you’re down. On the other hand, fake people celebrate when you experience failure and sadness. They consider it a victory when they see you down and defeated.
Genuine people help unconditionally; fake people help with self-interest.
Genuine people will help you without expecting anything in return. They are pleased to help you because they are cheerful givers. On the other hand, fake people will help you because they are expecting to gain something from helping you. They are obliged to help you because they are self-centred givers.
Genuine people always think about how to make you happy; fake people always think about how they can be happy using you.
Genuine people will call, text or chat you randomly to check if you’re okay. They are thoughtful people who always think about your well-being. On the other hand, fake people only contact you when they need something from you. They are self-serving and only care about their own satisfaction.
Genuine people are there for you through good times and bad times; fake people leave you when you are already useless to them.
Genuine people are there for you through thick and thin, for better or worse. On the other hand, fake people are only there for you in good times but they leave you during difficult times, especially if you cannot already offer something that will benefit them.
