The Art of Pretending

What is an Art? 

1. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture
2. Works produced by such skill and imagination.

What is Pretending?

pretending  present participle of pre·tend (Verb)
1. Speak and act so as to make it appear that something is the case when in fact it is not
2. Engage in a game or fantasy that involves supposing something that is not the case to be so

So straight to the point, what is The Art of Pretending?

To be honest, I have no clue what it really means. But one thing for sure, many have mastered this skill thanks to the difficult thing called 'life'.

Many of you may consider that those who pretend are fake.

But the truth is you really have no idea.

Not. At. All.

Have you ever been in their shoes? Nope.
Have you ever been in their heads? Nope.

So what makes you think that you have the right to judge them like you do???

I do not condone such thing as faking and pretending, but sometimes life forces you to make a decision you don't like and you find yourself tangled in a mess you don't want; and for me that decision turns out to be pretending.

When we pretend for the sake of others, it's okay to the society.
But when we pretend for our own good, it's labelled as faking by society.

So what does that explain to you?

The world is greedy,
So in order to have a piece of the world, you gotta be greedy to.

So this leads us back to one thing, pretending.

Pretend like you like someone when they annoys you and you won't be labelled as a bitch or an asshole.
Pretend like you care when you don't and you will be labelled as nice.
Pretend like you don't mind their nasty words, and you will be considered easygoing.
Pretend like you don't mind and you will be tagged as cool.
Pretend as much as you want and the society will accept you.


Be real, and you'll be shunned away.

That. Is. The Truth.
