Top Post #3: Quotes About Frenemies


This post was originally published on 11/5/16. I’m not at all surprised that it’s in the top five of the top posts on my blog.   Frenemies are a problem we all struggle with: people who are with us when the going is good and success is easy but leave us in a lurch once the going gets tough; people who are nice to our face and constantly flatter us yet stab us in the back and thwart us at every turn; people who swear they’re our friends but then when someone else comes along who they perceive is better than us (for whatever reason)….


When we have run-ins with these types of “friends” we feel mistreated, betrayed, and abandoned.   We must remember that our Frenemies’ dropping us or treating us badly is not a judgment on us or an assessment of our worth and value. Their behavior shows that THEY are the ones lacking in maturity and manners; THEY are the ones that are superficial and weak-willed.


Here are quotes to comfort you when you discover a person you had thought was your friend turns out to be a frenemy.
