Have you ever had the feeling that something was too good to be true?
Like winning an expense paid trip to Hawaii. Like getting a new car donated to you. Like meeting ‘that special man’ who is too perfect to be real. He is exceptional in every way – kind, generous, sensitive, considerate, and good looking.
Beware, because sometimes when a thing seems to be ‘too good to be true,’ it really is too good to be true.
I dated a guy once who seemed to have everything I desired in a man – tall, dark and handsome, intelligent, professional, well-spoken, and considerate at first. As the relationship progressed, he became sarcastic and verbally abusive. I discovered that he had a drug problem.
I learned a valuable lesson – you can’t judge the inside of a vessel by what you see on the outside.
Most of you would investigate and check out the free trip to Hawaii and the new car before you started planning your trip. I think you should also check out ‘that special man’ who seems to be perfect.
I’m not talking about spying and doing an FBI investigation. I am suggesting you watch out for signs of inconsistencies. Pay attention to signs of manipulation, deceit, dishonesty, and incongruencies.
He could be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Lucifer will get you, and me, when we let our guard down.
Remember – If you feel that something is ‘too good to be true,’ it usually is.
The measure of a person’s real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out_________________________Anonymous
