Just a bit fed up with the "surreality" of life.

    Surreality is probably not the word I mean, but I can't think of one rn.
    Does anyone else like ever feel that they're annoyed/fed up with the amount of "fakery" in the world? Like we, collectively, go through everyday life obeying social conventions, smiling and telling people we feel fine even when we're not, making promises we won't keep, forming friendships with seemingly good people who end up running away at the first sign of struggle etc. and it's just all so... fake? I find it hard to now trust anyone or get close to anyone at all because life just seems like one grand facade.

    I feel like this but I'm not sure what exactly to do about it. I'm not depressed or anything, but I'm certainly not happy about this fact and I just keep waking up feeling aimless about what to do in life. All of life seems like one massive show to me lately and I just don't feel like playing a part in this performance.

    Idk I can't express myself well enough, but everything just feels so... abnormal and I feel so out of touch with reality almost and idunno if anyone here has felt anything similar to this and can share their experience/help me out?

    same, you only have to go through x number of rejections until you start questioning yourself and whether you were rejected because you're you
