Faking,  action that is overly done. It implies something that is not real. There is a lot of fake stuff out there. Talk of fake material i.e. fake leather, fake documents, fake people. Which encompasses fake personality, fake loyalty, fake life, fake relationships.

It’s like something that portrays itself as white but is blue, as green but red, as yellow but brown. Kinda  like somebody is wearing a mask. What you see is the mask but not the real face. People wear masks for different reasons. Could be a medical mask, cause they don’t want to infect or contaminate other people. Could be someone who is immune compromised, and they want to prevent themselves from getting infection.

People fake for the most part to protect themselves. ‘Cause they don’t wanna be judged.  It’s a way of getting acceptance. Acceptance is really a big one.Most people if not everyone want to belong. When I was in high school,some students moved in groups. Like a group of 7 boys with a group  name. Something like Super 7 or The great 7. They would dress in the same style, talk kinda the same. But you would notice that individually these boys were of totally different personalities, and convictions. There would be an unofficial group leader, whom everybody is trying to imitate.


It’s a bondage   to misrepresent oneself to look cool.For girls that  was another story.They would compete to look the best. To have the best hair. Also striving to look the most beautiful. This has always be a plight of women; let me say most women.


At times I  am not an exception.Trying to look all collected,yet I have inner turmoil, sounds familiar? It’s  freeing to just be who I am. Those who accept me,will just embrace the real me. Nobody is gonna be liked by everyone.
