I appreciate people who still have the courage and character to be straight up about things in a generation where it is so easy to be fake. Social media allows anyone to sit behind an app or website and be someone completely different. The contradictions are absurd.
Of course the world has been populated with the fake and phony since the beginning of time, but the crutch of Twitter and Facebook has definitely created a world separate from reality where you can present yourself any way you’d like.
Lets remember, people know you in real life.
What’s worse than the internet fronters are people who live fake offline. The classic “say one thing, do another” types. We all know someone like this. These people will spoon-feed you everything you want to hear. But they’re tricky. It won’t sound forced, cliche, or suspicious. Everything they say will sound perfect through the guise of great conversation.
Nowadays, you can keep your grass cut really low and still miss a few snakes slithering by. People are more cunning than ever. You can get talked out of your time & energy without realizing it until you see you’ve been robbed.
The majority of people are out for themselves only. They will fake and front to take you for your sex, money, support, or whatever they’re after and unless you’re privy to these types, you will be a victim.
