Hypocrisy (or being a hypocrite) is the act of opposing or not purporting a belief or behaviour while holding the same beliefs or behaviours at the same time, or vice versa.
Some hypocrites are friends in disguise, or rather some friends are hypocrites in disguise. Is there a difference though? In my opinion, the latter is more lethal in nature, because the pain is harder to bear. Some people indulge in pretend play, but viciously stab you in the back in a manner that hurts tremendously. The betrayal is the part that gets me the most. Do you grin and bear it? Do you retaliate? Do you give them the benefit of the doubt, because you know, perhaps they really don’t know what they are doing?
I detest hypocrites immensely. Don’t you?
I had a conversation with God and He says “Forgive them, for you know I forgave you first.” And I am trying my best to, I really am.
