Hypocrites are some of the worst kinds of people you will come across in this life and chances are you will come across a lot of them. These people will make you feel awful and are super irritating in general.
If you have ever encountered a hypocrite you know exactly what I am talking about. For those that do not know, a hypocrite is someone who pretends to do or be something but isn’t. They are the pot calling the kettle black so to speak.
You can never live up to the expectations a hypocrite has for you because they will always try to force you into the unachievable. If you want to ensure that you never fall prey to a hypocrite, all you have to do is keep an eye out for the warning signs, yes it is that easy. Take a look below for a list of the most common warning signs.
1. They are always bragging
No one likes someone who brags constantly about things that do not matter. This usually relates back to self-esteem issues. This person is trying to make themselves sound great even if they are not.
2. They only pay respect to those who they can benefit from
If you are not in a position of power, chances are the hypocrite doesn’t care about you at all. Hypocrites love to suck up to those who are in charge and can push them up but when it comes to people on their level they will not look twice.
3. They hate on people who look or do better than them
If they think someone is better than them in any way the insults will flow like a waterfall.
4. They gossip
Gossiping is a means of lifting themselves up even if for just a moment. Sincere people do not partake in gossip.
5. They try hard to get the attention of others
They will stop at nothing to make sure all eyes are on them. If they manage to get something done any everyone will be told about it. These people revolve their lives around what other people think.
6. They feel the need to impress others all the time
There is no simply just being yourself with a hypocrite. Everything they do is to gain attention from other people.
7. They do not take action
Hypocrites will talk and talk and talk but never actually follow through with what they claim they will do.
8. They only help people when they have something to gain from it
These people think of no one but themselves. If they can benefit from the situation they will if not no help will be offered.
9. They lie to get what they want all the while complaining about people who lie
They will lie constantly to save themselves but if anyone else lies about anything at all it is the end of the world.
10. They do not practice what they preach
They will tell other people to slow down when driving all the while speeding to get wherever they are headed. Hypocrites will always say one thing and then act as if it does not apply to them.
Do you know someone who does these things? I cannot stand hypocrites. They get under my skin in all the worst ways. You should always cut them out of your life before things progress any further.
