We are in a world where people lie about practically everything. Some people call it “living a fake life”. The social media is not even helping matters. Making friends online is so hard because you end up getting disappointed when you meet them in person. You know, you can be in a very bad mood and still pretend to be cool while chatting.
You take fifty pictures and you just get to post one because you look so good in it. Of course with so much editing and a captivating caption not forgetting the hash tags. Mind you, everything is just for the likes. We spend so much time bragging about our lives that we ignore the truth.
We fake love for ourselves, we fake knowledge and achievements. The bad thing is this issue has destroyed great relationships. So many people have lost wonderful partners because of pretence.
Hey! Who are you trying to impress? I wonder. People paint their lives so beautiful, you would think they dropped from heaven. You see, so many people have hindered benefactors because of this kind of lifestyle. You have already created the impression that you do not need help.
Sincerely, you do not have to look perfect everyday. It is fine to make mistakes as long as you learn from them and never make them again. No one would actually beat you up for being you. Do you know that the people you imitate actually admire you? We can even conclude that low self-esteem births things like this.
Self-acceptance is really necessary. Be proud of who you are. Be proud of your background. Humility pays after all. Remember empty barrels make the loudest noise and not all that glitters is gold.
Reveal the champion in you and stop living another man’s life!
