Pretentious

I want to leave this country as soon as possible and start my life all over again in a place which nobody knows me. The more I am to face the pretence of the people around me, the more likely I will be disappointed in human instinct. I have been suffering so much for being able to see through human nature. Human beings are basically pretentious, and I am no exception.

Ironically, I myself who act as pretentious as the others do, still irritate the pretentious human nature pretty much. Do I have the right to justify my own pretense by saying that I am not as pretentious as the others? Or I can justify my own pretense by saying that I am forced to do so, or my being pretentious is for other people’s sake?

If I wish to leave any countries or communities which I have lived in so far to ignore pretentious people and anticipate meeting truly genuine people elsewhere, I will then surely be disappointed by the very fact that I will still meet pretentious people no matter where I go, unless I am ready to be segregated from the mass which I allegedly claim as pretentious.

  1. I think sifting through pretentious people just to find one genuine person is worth it. I think that’s what makes good friends so special.

    I know how you feel about leaving the country. You should. It will give good perspective.
