Reflecting the Positives in Me – #AtoZchallenge – U is for…

It is utterly impossible for me to be fake

It is utterly impossible for me to be fake

It is utterly impossible for me to be fake. I’ve tried. When I was much, much younger. I adapted to fit into whatever group I was hanging out with, but I really didn’t “fit.” I quickly realized what fake was and decided I just couldn’t do it. I think it kind of secluded me, or maybe that’s just my personality. I don’t surround myself with a lot of people. Genuine is my thing. I am genuine, therefore I require genuine. Close friends are what I treasure. TheHubs has taught me, over the years, how to be confident in myself, how not to care so much about how other people see me. It’s hard. But the older I get, the less I stress over it. So, I am who I am. If you don’t like me, oh well. This is me. I’m kind, loving, and honest. I’m happy with who I am.

    Hi Lady Jai, as usual I had have visited you every day – your posts are always great… reminds of something else I saw today… “don’t change so other people like you, just be yourself and the right people will love you for who you are – Unless your an a$$hole – then you should change” 🙂 Hope your month was awesome

    Not faking it is an awesome way to approach life (even if you feel a little isolated.) It means your friends are true friends because they know you.

  3. Comment by Arlee Bird:

    I like that attitude. A person who is genuine is more trustworthy and likeable. I might put on some airs if I’m in a business or social environment where I’m not thrilled to be, but I wouldn’t say I was dishonest necessarily, but civil as one should expect. With friends and family they get me as I am.

    I think it’s a great trait to have, one, that takes a lot of time to master for most of us. It’s really lucky that you’ve always had it. I’m sure you always will.

    I agree. We all have to be true to ourselves. If we are not, then we are all fakers.

    I’d rather be friends with someone who is genuine than someone who is fake any day of the week. Go You!

    Best to be who you are. There may be people who don’t like it, but better to weed them out early.

    I’m nodding and smiling because the real you is better than any fake you, you could ever be. Congratulations on showing yourself.

    It’s beautiful that you remain true to who you are. Fake just isn’t lasting, afterall.
