... the deceivers

Too bad that you had to get caught
That's not like you to lose face
So sad that you're not as smart
As you thought you were in the first place

Yeah, Doug And The Slugs really nail that sentiment home (song title "Too Bad")

I send that message out to the fakers...
but, personally, I couldn't care less.

I wear my real world on the sleeves of my journal and that's a choice I make.

by the same token,
I have several friends who I know exaggerate their fates in their journals...
because that's how they deal.
And I applaud them.

Others take on entirely new personalities, sexual or extroverted or whatever, and they do that for reasons unknown but not, I believe, in any effort to annoy or hurt anyone... and I say power to them. If I am fortunate enough to get to know the real you... then it is to my great pleasure... if not... then... whatever.

I can well imagine that there are people with life situations that demand they do not reveal their true selves... I cannot judge what I do not understand ... but my first reactions are pretty much "pity".

I was taken in to someones mania a couple of years ago and it was a thing of great drama. There was effort... great determined effort to deceive and hurt... and a grand crew of LJ CSI type's got to the bottom of that mess... and a mess it was. At the end of that... all I felt was deceived... but not bitter.

The big downer is how we become jaded and less likely to bring great sympathy to where it may very well be needed...
Such is life.

So sad that you're not as smart
As you thought you were in the first place


Yeah... sometimes that last line applies to the deceived... as much as it may to the deceivers.
