|Genuine. Genuine. Genuine. Is there ANY other option? Apparently so.

Why is this such a hard thing to achieve among my peers? Is it just the way I percieve them or is it really true? Finding genunie, sincere people is not an every day thing. And once you are blessed with someone who is, who strives to be that genuine its such a relief.
But so discouraging along the way.
My actions, thoughts, feelings, and words are dedicated to being as real, as genuine and understanding as I can be.
It truly is a neverending effort that you just have to rise above. To keep on trying. To grow
But when I look at some of my peers, I see the opposite. I see them dieing for acceptance amongst their tribes.
They try to mimick others, and in doing so they are only going backwards by focusing on all that silly frivilous drama.
All those harsh words said about eachother is just reflected inside of them.
And they can't deal with it. So they just keep being dishonest with their peers, and themselves.
It dissapoints me. I try my best to be the example.
But I feel that my efforts are obsolete at times. Yet I still keep on trying
Why can't they do the same?
What I see is individuals caught in an unhealthy habit. Old habits die hard, they say.
It isn't easy to break free of these self inflicted chains you have suspended your reason with. For anyone it can be a mental and emotional struggle.
I don't discredit these people
I just wish they'd try harder
With effort, comes a realization
Unfortunetly I believe that many of these people have not yet realized that realization
I see it in their actions, the way they talk. Yes, they realize something isn't nessicarily "right" with how they are acting
However, they continue this dissapointing cycle
So what makes the disillusioned person delusional? What makes them steadily steadfast down this path?
A mixture of all aspects.
Dishonestly, sadly, is a manifesting phenonema.
It grows and grows on your psyche the more you excersize it
Denial is a seriously strong mental trap. It is not something to be indifferent towards. It is a disease.
But one must always remember there is a human being in this equation.
A human being capable of overcoming this disease.
So where do we begin?
By taking a look into your environment. Who is in your "social circle", really?
Are they honest? Do they wish to be so?
It's hard to say. Judgement is SO important.
It's hard to be unbiased, but we must.
Take a look, a good, hard look at these people surrounding you.
From there you can decide wether or not you will be a part of this tribe any longer.
Please remember that who you surround yourself with is generally who you will become, in some aspects.
Influence is nine tenths of the law in my book.
Next you really have to see R E A L I T Y for what it is.
There is no other way than honesty.
Truth is reality and truth cannot be subjectified, no matter how many philospophy forums you visit.
This is a skill that is also something you cannot obtain overnight. This must be worked on. As we bias realities so easily.
Don't give up.
We have to be the strongest we can be in overcoming this haze.
That comes with trials, tribuations, victories, conflicts, circumstance...Heck, you name it.
But it IS well worth the fight. The confusion, The elation, The truth
In the end
All we have is reality
And you can never deny that.
