  • Does anyone else feel like life is super theatric and uncomfortable

    Outside of the 2-3 spontaneous interactions I have a month most of my interactions feel super scripted like I鈥檓 just talking to a character
    And If I just select the write dialogue options I get what I want

    And likewise when ppl speak to me I鈥檓 just an NPC I can offer you these 4-5 things if you say the right things.

    Rn I鈥檓 on my way to a thanksgiving dinner type of party
    And it was like a half baked invite for me but just the whole formality of getting dressed and s*** to go to this persons house for a random dinner just feels so cartoonish

    I鈥檓 at a point where upholding social norms is annoying
    Why do coworkers/colleagues talk to you a certain way and your boss another way

    Why can鈥檛 we just cut the bullshit and communicate

    Unfortunately you only succeed (in most cases) by bending to these norms and stage directions

    because we're insecure and don't want to give off the wrong impression, so people are conservative in their interactions in the name of playing it safe.

    that's unless you're kanye or someone who doesn't invest into artificial social conventions.

    How do you cope

    Everybody has different things that drive them, and I think people who are after money or status either dont see the artificiality in American culture or accept it without considering an alternative. I knew money and status arent my primary ends, which actually helped cause I said well I have to find what I want to put my life into, and once I did those things I was happier.

    As for specific conversation, i dont feel the same way uring them but think its true in the sense that the conversations youre referring to (with people youre not familiar with), most people are speaking strategically, not freely. Thats why honesty from a stranger endears them instantly

  • Op start a new trend of real niggas saying real s***. Ain't gonna change s*** by doing the same s***

    And if you ain't tryna change s*** then stop b****ing about it

    I've been tired of fake laughing on these teams meetings. These whites prob see my straight face and probably think I'm about to spaz out but I'm just in my head singing Runaway
