I’m not who I pretend to be

I’ll be honest, this post is one of those posts that I just want to write.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I use the internet and I’ve been re-evaluating it. I go through phases where I embrace the internet and every opportunity to share what I want on it. I then become overwhelmed by it. As humans we are complex and no matter how much we claim that we don’t care what people think about us, we do care. I don’t think about it much but there are times when I become aware of the fact that I’m trying to project a version of me to the world that doesn’t exist.

In simplistic terms I’m someone who likes my own company. My idea of happiness is being left alone. Modern culture confuses and annoys me yet I’m out there trying to pretend and care about what’s going on but that really isn’t the case.

I just wanted to get that off my chest.
