Day 4 of 30

Challenge

Have you ever told a lie. You know it’s a lie but you end up believing it to an extent that you can’t differentiate between truth and lie… I have experienced it not once nor twice. Self delusion? Yeah, that’s what i call it. Well, i sometimes read that for you to tell a lie convincingly, you have to believe the lie as the truth…

Another angle, is that have you ever potrayed yourself as someone else… That you ended up seeing yourself from that angle. There’s a very thin line between fantasy and illusion. What most people dont realize is that there is always a point of no return when you cross into the other end. And frankly, in real life, also many times, we dont dare to show our true selves. We live within masks.

We all are guilty either way or the other. We all have different level of participation in it. Social network is really not helping matters. You or rather we, all live one way, come online and portray another thing. Fear of what? Rejection? Or wanting to belong??
It is rather shocking to realise that whatever you had built up in your mind about someone, whom you had thought of as a pretty good friend, over a long period, is zilch.

Basically, it depends on what the objectives of what we intend to achieve. Was it fun? A genuine delight in making fool of people? Self illusion? A genuine need for privacy? But if so, why the need to come online at all? We have a limited life span and in this short life too, we waste our time copying habits of others. We are so influenced by others that we lose our individuality. What happened to being ourselves?

For those living out the fake life to gather friends/followers/woreva {in jennifa’s voice}, I wonder if their personality in reality, is not enough to pull friends towards them. Do they have real friends in reality? If so, how will they explain the discrepancies between their Online life and reality… F**k it, you are suffering from semi-Multiple personality Disorder (MPD). Worst is if in reality, you are still seriously living somebody else’s life. I’m not saying you should not have a role model. But there is a limit to what you should ascribe to. Take a mirror, look into it and tell yourself who is being reflected.

Tweeting ‘TGIF-Clubbing things’ when you actually know that you know that by 8pm, u’ll crawl to your bed, tweeting ‘KFC things’ when you are actually at one wack mama put’s shop, or tweeting ‘Andre & Rozay things’ when you are actually getting high on alomo, travelling to america via photoshop and loads of others. Get real and face reality, be yourself… It’s left to others to like you as you are or hate you as you are!!!.

I’ll end this with a quote from the late Steve Jobs.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”.
