Why do I feel so fake?

Postby f/j » Sun Mar 11, 2018 10:09 am

Admittedly, stuff has been going good lately and I've developed some good coping mechanisms, but I guess it feels unnatural and fake to not be constantly going over drama in my head. Oh, and I guess I just have a low tolerance for fakeness because I used to be so fake because I thought that was the only way to be happy, and I'm afraid I'm slipping back into that old tendency.

I am not therapist but from my experience, those who feel fake internally are usually suffering from some sort of personality disorder.

I will encourage you to read some quotes or wikipedia about Winnicot and Kohut...both men spent their life times talking about how false self is developed and what to do about it...and sometimes those who are repulsed by others' fakeness are fake themselves, otherwise, you would not notice it or would not care.
