        Do you know that 90% people in the world blame others for  being fake. How come only 10% people in the world are fake and rest 90% that make the majority of population are natural or real??? Other questions that tickle my mind everyday are: Why do people behave fake? Are all other people, who say they are real; actually are real? Or when you lie for some good reason with no intention to hurt anyone...just for your own well; makes you a fake person? Why do some people behave sweet in certain situations and fake their personality by artificially modifying their behaviour?

 While looking for answers of all these questions I came across one thing. May be its not about being fake or real...Politically it’s about more fake/lies Vs less fake/lies.
                  
 Let us discuss all these things one by one. First of all why do people behave fake? People may behave fake to fit in with others around them  or it may be an attempt to become a person they are not. It may be because they want to change who they are in small ways because they are  uncomfortable with certain people or situations. Sometimes people may act fake just to make their own lives seem more exciting.  However in most of the cases, it is because people feel insecure about themselves in certain situations or surroundings.

For some people it's a way to get attention, the loud voice, the drama, the toxicity. It works for some people, and it's all they have, negative or positive attention, no matter, all the same!


Are all other people, who say they are real; actually are real? Believe me no...They are not!!! The case of truth and lie, natural or fake is more than a subject contradiction. Even lies and fakes reveal certain truths. We better acknowledge the facts of truth/lie mixes than pure expressions of either truth or lie. A basic reason is this:  Humans discover reality both physical and mental. In physical regard human limit is his skin; of his physical body. In mental regard his limit is his ability in thinking, guessing and imagination. Humans live simultaneously in different worlds or levels of reality. To be able to find a stand of himself or to be able to be himself  humans test their limits in order to find out whether they should dare to exceed them or not. And it is here that  lies and fakes come into picture.



When you lie for some good reason with no intention to hurt anyone...just for your own well; makes you a fake person?  Well this depends to what extent you have gone with your lies because you cannot always justify your lie under the guise of “lie being said with no bad intentions”. There are many cases where lying would be the correct thing to do, namely when withholding or altering the truth would be more beneficial than being honest. The simplest case is that of a "white lie"; for example, giving a positive opinion that does not truly reflect your feelings to save someone's feelings from being hurt. When someone asks you if they look good in an outfit or if you like their new haircut and your answer is really not what they wanted to hear, you might want to consider telling a white lie. A lie spoken in such sort of situations is for the good because the truth could really hurt someone's feelings, while a lie might lighten up the moment.


Why do some people behave sweet in certain situations or surroundings and fake their personality by artificially modifying their behaviour? People behave that way because it is part of being human. Humans are essentially social creatures. They long to be a part of a community. If people did not modify their behaviour to conform to different social situations, society would basically stop functioning. Part of the deal we make with society is that in order to get the benefits of society, you don't always get to do what you want to do. However, sometimes it's not worth the hassle of being honest with people. For example, suppose a few people tried giving advice to a co-worker but  he turned against all of them. They were right in their intention of  trying to help but he saw it as them "going against him."

                                         

   Generally lies shall protect a human on his way to be able being him. In lying the human is hiding behind lies and fakes, because:



# he fears being not acknowledged - lies and fakes thus serve as calls for attention;

# he fears being destroyed by truth - lies and fakes thus serve as calls for indulgence;

# he wants to show his courage while being - lies and fakes thus serve as stories of great fantasies and wishes to be someone special;

# he wants to hide his egoism - lies and fake thus serve as means to make him appear humble or holy or human.


In all cases we must not forget the difficulties everybody has in finding himself as being himself in a world full of temptations, hurts, insults, measurements and claims, of which many of them are not human, but deeply inhuman. Lies und fakes are mostly thought as being protective for the unprotected soul. In other cases lies and fakes shall serve as diversions from looking upon the unprotected soul.
