Being Real

Here is a good quote from Tupac Shakur:

"It's fu**** up how people get judged for being real, and how people get loved for being fake."

That's an interesting quote and why is that? Why is it that people who just say what they feel get ostracised and people who are playing a performance get loved? Why is that?

I guess that the fake people say things that other people want to hear while the real people say what is on their mind and it may not be what the other fake people want to hear. When the real person says something 'controversial' it may ruin the fantasy world that the fake person has built for him or herself.

For some reason when I write this, I think of Sheldon Cooper from the sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon seems to say things without regard to people's feelings and thoughts. Of course people do have problems with that and I'm not saying that you should just blurt out whatever is on your mind.

"You look fat."


"You are a fu***n idiot."

is not going to go down well with anyone, at anytime.

However, sometimes you need to say what is on your mind and if people get offended by it, that is their choice, not your choice.

For example, if you want to say that the president of your country is doing a good job then go ahead and say it. Depending on what country you are in the people you say it to may have a very different opinion but that is their choice and you are just being real. You are not offending them personally and if they do get offended then there is something wrong with them not you.

Go ahead. There is nothing wrong with being real. Being fake on the other hand ...
