We became close friends with this lovely girl and we worked together and life was great. My hubby worked closely with a Team and I had to take a step back as I had a child and then another so he had to find an assistant. This young boy was quiet and didn’t talk a lot and did not have many friends. We took him in like family and this young girl that worked part of this team. As my hubby would work every week for a Company as a photographer he realised things began to change. He realised that the lady he reported to was always yelling at him and not treating him nice. It was as if he had to keep his mouth shut to keep business with her otherwise she would find a new person to do this job. The young girl we became friends with was single and always having some problems in her life and we always tried to help. We never let her pay for dinner if we went out, we accepted her into our home as family. One day things started to change she began questioning a lot of things , acting strange and realised she was trying to obtain information from us to pass onto the lady that would give us business. My hubby was passionate about expanding this ladies business so we decided to get another person to photograph the event. She didn’t like that as we had already realised she was trying to slowly take away my hubbies role and get our assistant to do the job at a much cheaper rate. She didn’t even like him she called him slow she was just trying to win him and all her team over and make my hubby look bad and she did just that. My long time friend the night she ended my hubbies work for her everyone around her stopped talking to us. It was awful and then I realised my friend was not a friend she was giving misleading information to this lady. She has no idea the impact it had on our life. We are slowly trying to get back on track there is more to this story but she knows the truth and that will slowly hurt her inside. Our assistant was easily giving information to this lady also and she made my husband to look like a monster. We were deceived by everyone we thought were not only friends but family too. I will never understand how friends can deceive you while pretending to be so nice when you have genuinely loved them and have been so kind to them. Life still has been in a daze at the moment. Not knowing if you will have to sell your house and survive the week is not a nice feeling. My husband is a well respected man in his industry and he has earned his stripes for his kindness, honesty and love and passion for what he does and we will not be defeated by selfish cowards that cannot accept success and happiness in another friends life. They will not win because not only has this made us a stronger couple but a powerful and strong family unit. See you at the top.

  • It’s hurtful when you put yourself out there and genuinely try to help others, and they don’t repay you in kindness or loyalty.


  • I’m so sorry to hear about the betrayal of your friend. It’s unbelievable that people can be so two-faced when you yourself would never ever do that to someone else.

    It sounds like you are not being brought down by the situation though and are looking to continue to grow and thrive. I wish you all the best and hope that you will be able to learn to trust again in the future.
