There’s a lot of fake people in the world. I don’t know why people view this as a beneficial quality to have in themselves, I wish I did. I guess more people like you when you can lie and make yourself seem like something else other than what you are. To me this just seems like a lot of work for meaningless relationships with people you obviously don’t care about. It takes a lot of effort to develop a whole personality based off of something you aren’t actually like so why would you want to do that? Why? I really don’t understand. What’s the point of going out of the way to be someone who isn’t yourself? No matter what you do with yourself you aren’t going to please everyone, there is always going to be someone who doesn’t like you, whether or not they have a valid reason so at that point you might as well be yourself anyway because no matter what you do someone isn’t going to like you.
I’ve encountered several fake people in my time and I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of any of them. They make you feel worthless once you find out how fake they are because it feels like you weren’t even worth the truth of who they really are. It’s like being best friends with a liar, no one wants that. I’ve been best friends with a liar and all it did was make me feel anxious and paranoid about everything that I shared with them. If your “friends” with someone who is fake are you really friends with them? Probably not. They just act that way so people like them and unfortunately you might fall for someone’s fakeness all because they say the things they want you to hear.
A fake person will say whatever they need to for someone to agree with them or do what they want to do. It might be a very short time until you catch them in their lies or it could take some time. They do what they have to so that they get what they want. It’s sad to me to see that people can live a lie, not only for the people they lie to but for themselves as well. There has to come a point where you get so caught up in your own lies and being someone who isn’t fully yourself that you lose who you really are in your own mind. That’s really sad to me, to get to a point where you lose yourself, there comes a point where you can’t keep track and you start to self destruct. That’s a tragedy.
Keep true to yourself. There’s no point in trying to get people who don’t matter to like you. If someone doesn’t like you then move on, they obviously aren’t worth your time. If someone in your life is fake there’s no point in trying to keep them around either, cut them out. There’s no use in keeping them around if they’re just going to lie and use you for stupid things. Keep the positive people around and cut out those who don’t really care.
