I’ve seen people trying to impress, faking, lying, hiding. They do, to get the feeling of being belonged or for recognition. Or maybe they don’t know. I’m not sure, why they do it. Not sure, it’s not going to change, too. Saying it’s good or bad, right or wrong isn’t very helpful.
So, what to do then? You can’t detest. Here’s what I say, let it go. It’s not in your control. They’ll be sorted out. If they are offering something and you need it, then go and take it. It makes them feel good. You’re treating them as a human; you should do that. After all, we’re humans. But if you don’t require it, give it to somebody else who needs it or say no. And you know how to do that. If there’s anything you can learn, do learn. Whatever they do, don’t take it personally. It’s not about you, at all. Have boundaries.
See, you can’t get rid of them, neither you can’t control them. But you can be in control. Try to be strong without being catapulted by the random hurricanes which throw you away from your course.
