7 Signs You're Talking To Someone Fake

They are just lonely people trying so hard to fit in.

7 Signs You're Talking To Someone Fake

Seven billion people, fourteen billion faces. Heard them deep people say that, right? People wear masks all the time. Sometimes for good reason, and sometimes to create a image for themselves. Often you feel surrounded by fake people that you actually want to give a high five to right on their face for faking it so well. Those are the people you meet in your day-to-day life. They also come as your friend, but you just cannot remove them from your life, right? Life comes with its own misery. Either you fake it along with them, or nicely tell them that they are doing a good job faking kindness and then slandering about people behind their back.

Fake people's words are not reflective of what they truly feel. They will say one thing to you, and another, completely different thing to a different group of people. They don't stand for something -- they are just there trying so hard to make themselves look good.

1. They are the center of the universe. Start a conversation and they will tell their whole life story.

2. They bring negative energy with them and will always talk about your insecurities.

3. They want you to be there when they need you. But when you need them, poof, they disappear.

4. They will smile to your face and then backstab you.

5. They have all the time in the world to lie and make up stories.

6. They will brag about anything and everything.

7. And that fake laugh they do when they are around the popular-rich-I-don't-care-whatever group.

You cannot really avoid fake people, because usually they come as "friends." Sometimes you end up listening to their life story and internally screaming because that is how nice of a person you are. You know they're lying but still listen to them with a nod and fake a laugh that you learned from them so well. Deep down they are just lonely people trying so hard to fit in.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
