Two faced, fake people are exhausting, untrustworthy and can cause immense amounts of stress.
While it may be easy to recognize them in the workplace or at school, it can be much harder to identify these people when they are closer to home. This is because family members tend to ‘get away’ with more.
There are often excuses made, and ingrained bad behaviour that is continually tolerated. This only keeps it going and makes it worse.
How To Deal With Fake Family Members
The short answer is that it’s best to distance yourself from fake family members. This means not engaging with them and removing them from your life as much as possible.
If you need to interact with these people, try to keep conversations and interactions as brief as possible. Avoid reacting or attempting to reason with them, as this will often end up in a conflict that will likely not be resolved.
Remember that you are not responsible for the person’s behaviour, and you have a right to protect your own well-being.
