I act confident, but I’m not.

No one is totally confident. But all my friends seem to play this game where they always act on top of their shit but really don’t have that much to brag about. Isn’t confidence supposed to be about something? If you’ve got nothing going on, what’s the point? I get that they are trying to feel good about themselves and hook up with girls, but it’s never stops. It’s like everyones afraid to take the mask off.

    There’s a concept you’ve likely heard of known as “fake it ’til you make it”. It actually means to act “as if” you have a skill or asset until you understand what is required to attain that quality, and then you naturally display the characteristics of someone with the skill or quality. Unfortunately – and I swear that this is worse in the newest generation of younger folk than I’ve seen previously – many (most?) people doing this get stuck in the “faking it” part and never graduate to developing the actual talent or ability, which results in a shit-ton of hollow, disingenuous behavior and a bunch of entitled little brats running around who are always posing for pictures of themselves that no one is taking…so it’s good that at least you sense / see the difference, and are bothered enough by it to say something. There is hope!
