One thing I can say for sure is that I am not a fake person and I don’t care for fake people. Now I will also say that I have come to learn that I don’t always have the balls that I think I do. Sometimes I punk out. But I am never fake.
TLC came out with a song on their “Crazy Sexy Cool” album called “The Case of the Fake People”. Classic. It was as true back in the day as it is now. Man I used to love me some TLC, ever since “Ain’t too Proud to Beg” when I was in the third grade. Thought I knew what I wasn’t too proud to beg for, smh.
Lately I’ve felt that I’m growing more and more tired of the fakeness. Like at what point do you come to realize that you’re grown so there is no need to act like you’re in high school? If you don’t like me, that’s your loss, not mine. Maybe I rub you the wrong way. Maybe my beliefs aren’t in line with your beliefs. All fine, just don’t be fake with me.
Perhaps it’s because I was a military brat, but keeping friendships going is kinda hard for me. If it wasn’t for social media idk how my life would be at this time because that’s how I keep in touch with my friends. With my associates and even some enemies from highschool, I’m closest with them on facebook. It’s hard for me to make new friends. I’m not the most outgoing person. I usually make friends via work or school, but when I’m no longer at that job or working the same schedule or maybe we’re in the same building but no longer in the same departments…it becomes hard to stay in touch.
But don’t smile in my face and talk about me behind my back. Don’t have lunch with me or be friends with me on social media and then don’t speak to me in person. So the first time that happens, I let it slide. Why? Because I understand that I can be a pretty oblivious person sometimes, and I just don’t see things. But then if it happens again, I get the hint. No need to tell me twice. It just sucks that I will continue to have to deal with the case of the fake people. I am not a fan. It’s just a part of life I suppose.
How do you deal with the fake people in your life? Share with me!!!

so so true

The friends that I hold close are genuine. Some acquaintances are the ones I worry about. Some people need to be called out. Some just take time to learn. Most come around, but some don't.
