We are living in a world of fakeness where encountering realism is no less than a blessing. People are imitating each other, from dressing to eating habits, socializing to lifestyle and living a completely wannabe life instead of who they really are. Life is no longer about emotions, content, empathy, it’s about being a people pleaser, flaunting your made-up version and be in the good books of everyone. Friendships are for purpose, more the benefits, stronger the friendship. It’s the source for people to take maximum advantage of the other and leave them once the motive is accomplished. But sadly such friendships don’t last longer as the foundation itself is shaky. It only leaves behind grumpy souls with grudges in their hearts and awkward silences.

Insecurities are increasing – My best friend got a new friend, I should be alert. Oh! they went on a holiday, why should I stay back. She has got a new hair color, all are praising her, I am no less than her, let me redo mine too, neighbor bought a new car, I should buy a bigger one…and the list goes on & on…

In the midst of all this, there are people who are still true to themselves and maintained their originality, hence they are treated as ‘NOT SUITABLE’. People around them try to shape them like they are but when they don’t succeed, their true colors are seen. They don’t have guts to thrash them openly on their faces but as soon as they turn their back, the real crib game starts. The interesting part is this cribbing is not only for those real folks but also for the ‘so called friends’.

People themselves don’t know what they are chasing, what they are running after. They are just a part of herd race with no direction. Things are done to show off the world, what fancy lifestyle they are leading, which brands they are wearing, which exotic locations they are traveling and thanks to the social media for being the best channel.

Life is short, there is no time for fake socializing. Think if you really need to have unnecessary drama and politics in your life. Do you really want to be with people who don’t make you feel loved and wanted. And it’s not that we don’t know, all of us have get those ‘VIBES’, if not at first meet then in 2-3 meetings itself, we get to know who we can actually get along well and who we can’t.

So why not invest your precious time with people who celebrate your presence and cut the negativity from your life. Be yourself, spend time with your loved ones, be at peace. Work on improving your shortcomings rather than finding faults at others. Cherish the little joys with people who you really love and who love you back. Keep the ego, grudges away and embrace the positivity and goodness around you.
