Sometimes the enemy (unfriendly friend) is someone who may seem to be very friendly and nice. This can happen in various settings throughout life – at school, at work, with family members – where someone seems nice and then crosses the line by betraying you in some way or another.
A friend of ours has been one of the biggest culprits of this type of scenario. She’s been a really good friend and involved in all aspects of our lives for years now but she’s also a huge pain on my side when it comes to certain things.
She always talks about how much she cares about us and she’s one of the most physically active people I know, but sometimes her actions border on being too overbearing or insensitive.
A person’s friend is not always their enemy. A person’s enemy can come in many forms. One form is when a person is trying to befriend you by acting like their friend.
We highlighted some fervent prayers that you can pray as a believer to uncover and prevent unfriendly friend enemies from coming into your life and making you unhappy.
Unfriendly friend enemies might not seem like a bad thing at first, but they can be problematic for your happiness and well-being. They might make you feel annoyed or suspicious while they lead you to believe that they are your friends who just have some disagreements with you.
A good way to identify these enemies disguised as friends is by looking at how the unfriendly friend behaves towards others in general. If this person has been mean, rude, or hurtful towards others in the past, then it is likely that he or she will be hostile towards you as well.
