Fake Off

If you know or feel someone or something is fake and comes in all forms of fake-ness...would you still fake an alliance with that thing or person?


Then would you also be called a fake?

probably some people might think i am fake too right because i am seeing associating with fakeness?

well such is life...we cannot always be honest...

i think...what say?

depends... if i like this fake paradise... i may b party to it and chose to ignore its validity! ;)

fake ppl generally tend to annoy me! i prefer the obnoxiously outspoken kind....as long as....its genuine!! atleast gives me a chance for a genuine repartee (given that im not madly upset wit the naked truth/lie and can come up with a fitting reply)!! :P

tat genuine/honest enough answer?

Anu I don't think you would be fake if you associate with a fake person(saving myself a little bit embarrassment!)
The social norms are such that we probably cannot break off the engagement with a person/people just because we think they are fake!

Anu Russell said...

P...yes ma'm...honest :)

Shilpa, exactly...but does that not make you feel bad...

everytime I am in a situation like that I cringe inside...

shilpa said...

Yes I do. And I feel like I really have to make a lot of effort to be nice to such people...something that drains me emotionally.

And you do not even feel gratified at the end of the conversation :(

been busy anu... how are you??
I was thinking about ur post...well being fake i think is very relative...
every one has something that he/she wants to hide the truth about.. what may look fake to one.. may not really be fake to someone else...
also what is there to remember is that every one acts under circumstances..and no 2 circumstances can be absolutely similar to warrant the same reaction.. If only life was like a cinema reel with sub titles and fast forwards and rewinds.. it would be so much more easier to know and understand people.. unfortunately the Art of Talking got lost somewhere amidst computers, emails and chatting.. and the next person who does not conform to our views of reality is termed a fake...
