It’s never easy to just step out of the cocoon of a life that we’ve been conditioned to believe we’re “free” from. The truth is, we’re not. We’re not “free from” our old social media habits, habits that have been ingrained in us by our family and friends who we’ve been conditioned to “trust”.
We have all been conditioned to believe that we do not have our own social media accounts and that we can only speak to people via social media. The truth is, we are not alone. In fact, the vast majority of us can get in touch with our friends through social media. Its not that we can’t talk to someone, its just that we have never been in a true environment where we have someone to talk to.
In real life we have a social media footprint that we can use to talk to people we know in real life. Although some of us may be able to talk to someone on social media, it is still a lot of conversations that we would need to have if we were talking to someone we know.
Not talking to others really cuts into the comfort of being in a social group. I mean, it’s not like we are having long-distance romantic discussions, it’s just everyday interactions. But even if we do have longer-distance conversations, we are still limited in what we can talk about (and what we cannot talk about).
Its hard to talk to people that don’t want to talk to you in real life, especially if you’re a member of a very small group. But what most people don’t realize is that being on social media does not always mean you have to be in the spotlight. You can and should be as open and honest as you want. Sometimes, its just easier to just say what you’re thinking rather than being defensive about it.
Social media has always been a great place to be. If you are the only person on your page who is willing to share your thoughts with your friends, then it is not a bad place in which to live. When you have very few friends, it is not difficult to start making fake friends. You can even start to see the cracks in the fake friendships, and learn how to let them go.
You can do the same on social media. It is easy to start to fake yourself as someone you are not by sharing your interests and hobbies with your friends. However, if you want to be honest, you can do the same on social media. And a lot of people are honest.
I have long been a fan of social media as a place where I can share my interests and hobbies with my friends, and I have found that I can start to fake myself along with it. It started in high school where the more I shared my interests and hobbies, the more I got asked about them. But once people began to see that I was not interested in the same things, they stopped asking.
I’m a big fan of fake life quotes on social media. They aren’t just for my friends to use. They’re good for everyone. For example, I recently made a fake life quote that I sent to someone who asked me to review a book. I didn’t tell her I was writing a fake life. She asked me out on a date, and I was flattered, but I felt like a coward because I didn’t tell her I was writing a fake life.
As long as you are not sharing a fake life, then you are not a fake person. You are a person who has chosen to fake that they are a real person. While I do believe that people should be able to say what they truly think if they choose, I believe that people should not fake or do things that are not really theirs. A fake life is not a life worth living, and people should not fake their lives out like they are real.
