The friend

I remem­ber there was this one time where I have post­ed some­thing about being fake. I don’t under­stand though, just because I pre­fer not to have my pic­tures post­ed online, I am auto­mat­i­cal­ly called a ‘fak­er’. When I do, and when I post­ed an old pic­ture of myself, I am called a ‘fak­er’.

Then, when oth­er peo­ple post celebri­ty pic­tures as their pro­file pic­tures, they are not being fake. Why is that so? I hard­ly could com­pre­hend. I fig­ured, if the said per­son is using a pic­ture that is not his own, but of a celebri­ty, he is spared from the pub­lic per­se­cu­tion, but how­ev­er if the said per­son is using a pic­ture of anoth­er per­son who isn’t quite as famous, is he then a fak­er. Does that make sense?

A pro­file pic­ture is a pic­ture that I feel much rep­re­sents me at that moment of time, per­haps a pic­ture that I think is good, well tak­en, or have some artis­tic forms in it. It does not auto­mat­i­cal­ly make me a ‘fak­er’ because in no way did I men­tioned that the pic­ture rep­re­sent me. Just like if I would to put my pup­py dog pic­ture as my dis­play, it does not mean that I am a dog.

Even more that I could not com­pre­hend is that peo­ple claim­ing to know me by per­son, telling anoth­er per­son sto­ries about me that he con­vinient­ly made up. The said per­son knows me by per­haps a few ‘hi, how are you’ mes­sages sent on MSN or Skype but nev­er any­thing else. What is there to know about me then?

How can one judge that I am a bad per­son, when you have only heard sto­ries about from anoth­er per­son who has prob­a­bly heard sto­ries about me that heard my sto­ries from anoth­er per­son that got the sto­ry from his friends who got it from his anoth­er friend?

What’s worst is back in the days when you could tell me about your life sto­ries about how you have ran away from home and how you have man­aged to deceived so many peo­ple think­ing that your dad is actu­al­ly not your real father but in fact your sug­ar dad­dy real­ly amaze me. I mean, you have to trust me at least to a cer­tain high lev­el to tell me such things, which in return I have kept it as a secret for it will ruin your rep­u­ta­tion as a per­son and as a famous blog­ger.

You instead choose to lis­ten to rumors and based on your sil­ly assump­tions that you thought I was the one behind the things that some­one else was doing because you felt that it was my ‘tac­tic’.

Do you think I would even be both­ered?

How old are you already? 21 and you still have this kin­da kid­dish per­cep­tion. God, save me already.
