How I see it … we all encounter a variety of people in our lives, and while our lives may be similar or opposite, we all have to quickly decide if this person is “fake” or “true” or “half and half” in terms of being sincere in their actions or behaviors. Yes, I probably could have used a thesaurus to choose better words, but then I would be questioning myself about my own intent and purpose of writing this blog. People are motivated through a number of ways, and while observing and interacting with individuals, I am constantly waiting for the selfishness to come out in the conversation or through a behavior.
Maybe it’s me, maybe I’m a little crazy, I don’t know, maybe I am, but either way, in most cases, the “selfishness” becomes apparent. While I’m waiting for the “selfishness” to make it’s way to the top of the conversation, I also ponder whether or not the person is just being “fake” to get what he or she wants, or if they are “true” in their propose for interacting with me, or are they a little of both, which is where the “half and half” comes into play.
So, How I see it … maybe we are all built this way in order to survive in society. I think we all want to think that we are “true” to ourselves, and feel we are not putting on any kind of “fake” character traits when dealing with others, as well as ourselves, but in reality, maybe we are all a little “half and half” because we are constantly surrounded by it. Well, as you can see, I don’t have an answer, but hopefully, it will help me with my next conversation.
