“Why are people so fake?”

“They feel they would be misunderstood if they were authentic, or perhaps they fear they would be understood and the social consequences would be just as devastating. They may have adopted this inauthentic lifestyle for so long that they have actually lost touch with who they really are, have forgotten themselves. Or, perhaps worse, they have mistaken themselves for their own facade, and so are fake only because they feel they have no other choice. In any case, the fakes are made all because they care more about what others think about them than they care about being who they are. It‘s kind of sad, really.”
