Don’t feel bad, out of place, weird, if you don’t really like what others like. The truth is that most people in this world, especially some of us men, pretend to like or love something. They pretend because they seek to belong to a group in society, they are scared to be themselves so they ignore who they really are just to fit in.
They lie to themselves. Pretending is a way to neglect who you really are deep inside, and this manifests as many psychic disturbances even as they don’t know it. One gets angry easily. One gets frustrated easily. One becomes depressed easily. And many clinical anomalies as well appear.
Reach deep within
So, you can see how unhealthy it is. Pretending is the disease that many ignore because it festers in the subconscious like a tumor in the brain–slowly and in secrecy until it becomes a big problem. The brave and real among us must then reach deep within us and be ourselves entirely in order to remain healthy, boost confidence, and be truly happy with who we are.
