Honesty in a fake society

Standard

There is and old saying “It’s better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie” and I am among a very selected few that actually believe this rings true. People say they want the truth but in reality they want you to say what they want to hear.

Maybe it’s me there is problem with, maybe I need to stop being honest with people. I mean what’s the point upfront and honest with people when they would be happier living a lie and having you consign for it. They say ignorance is a bliss maybe that’s why intelligent people go insane, it is truly burden to know and feel so much and know there is no way a good majority of people will ever able to understand, share and or appreciate your thoughts, gestures and opinions. People are so used to other lying and being fake, honesty is now taboo. People look for hidden meaning in words that have none because everyone is so accustomed to bullshit; no one says what they really mean.

One thing you can always count on me for you is to take my words at face value and this is why I now stay to myself. I don’t fit in this society or this generation; I’m not plastic enough.

    • The problem is when you try to tell someone the truth you’re seen as rude, or fake yourself, it’s frustrating but just how the world is =( so as you said sometimes it’s better to stop fighting. there is no point really.

    • Exactly Rob, it abounds. Being fake, dishonest, and cunning is becoming a norm in my society and it is a must for you in order to succeed, otherwise you are considered a naive and weak person.

  1. I understand the feeling you maybe should do it too but on the terrible side, if you’re aware that you’re giving them what they want you’re tormenting yourself. Dishonesty can give a nasty feeling inside. Besides, the best way to get true friends are those who can accept you no matter how much you slapped them with the truth.

    • Dishonesty and lying are a human nature, we even have the ability to lie to ourselves to justify a wrong or to help us lie better by believing it.Trapped by dishonesty sometimes I feel like Holden Caulfield. But like you said the key is having genuine friends who like you appreciate the truth no matter how hard it is.
