    Do you ever really know someone

    Do you ever really know someone?

    *Feels like life is the biggest scam going around. With everyone telling their story and the audience, us, the ones listening, we form an opinion based on what the story teller chooses to share.

    Lets be truthful, it is a mirage, people will decide how they want you to feel and based on that they will only share details that are in line with their story. People are not neat and tidy, and just when you think you know someone they do something completely out of character. People end up getting outraged because their perfect neat and tidy life is untrue, this is probably why people will deny it and say things like "can't be true or they wouldn't do that".

    Can you really blame people for giving you misguided information about themselves? Secrets are a big part of everyone, we all have them and most of us are terrified that our secrets may be shared. Like we have to know more about ourselves than other people. Sort of gives us a feeling of control "I'm the best judge of who the real me is, not you", but our secrets are not part of the real picture we show to the world and if ever shared, people will claim its a mistake. Not me at all.

    I wonder if you could choose between meeting someone in person, or receiving a file on someone attached with debts / buying history, web browsing history, medical history, past relationships, travel history and work profile. Which one would you go for? Sure you can meet someone in person, but would you really get to know them? Of course they would tell you stuff but they would filter and select, selling a story that they think you want to hear. You would build a picture that you think is true.

    Sometimes you just want to know the facts about someone. Not hear some over the top emotional response.

    This is what happens when you hang w tweakers

    Unless you grew up around this stuff you’re going to end up being a victim

    They’ll steal your wallet and help you look for it

    In these crowds you’re either a sheep or a wolf
    Those are your choices

    In short yes, but I feel like it's more rare as an adult for me. I don't exactly have a mass amount of friend. People here may have picked up on this lol.

    You cant hate them either, you just accept them for who they are and take precautions.

    Or even better yet, just cut contact with them.

    Just have to distance yourself

    I don’t talk w half my family, same w my wife and her family

    They never change

    Legit don’t care when people say they’re clean now etc I’ll tell them to
    Their face you’ll relapse so why bother

    Drug addicts in recovery is a real joke tbh never seen it work ever once in my life

    I always try to assume the very worst of people and live by the art of war/book of five rings/Niccolò Machiavelli's writings when it comes to dealing with people.

    Tbh i am more concienscious, disciplined, assertive in my intent and planning than 99% of people.

    I try to be honest with myself, which in turn gives me anxiety over how much of a naive lazy arrogant prick, that anxiety/feeling of my guts being twisted in turn makes me force myself to study hard, read, read, read, reflect, block out the monkeybrain easier etc.

    I get the feeling that i am rare though, most people have no clear path in anything, they live by chasing pleasure and running away from hardship, they dont even try to be honest with themselves.
