Are you real?

I always hear people say that they're real. Or that they only like real people.

What does that mean exactly?

What do you think it means to be real?

It's a personal judgement. Means different thing to different people, like "cool" or "nice" or "trendy". Typically "real" judgements is just a way to feel superior to someone else....

It's the opposite of being fake.

So on the flip side, what is being fake?

I'm real --

real chubby
real hairy
real tired
real blah
real blee
real whatever

...my guess is the person meant "real" as in not putting up a front...not playing the typical stupid social games that people play, and just enjoy things for what they are. At least that's how I use it.

Those who pretend to be rich, despite being in their eyeballs in debt, just to look "datable" to women, is fake. The person who bullcraps their way through life is fake....simple enough.

I am a fake, a sham, a guise for the world ,far from real, sometime the world will not accept someone that is real.

But I am REAL annoyed at the way the REAL world works, not allowing for the REAL emotions to come out of be viewed. The world puts us in a REAL box with is not really REAL, the REAL people show who they are inside, they are the essence of REAL.

NOT being real are people who are always trying to "present an image"...like Hollywood stars, always want you to think something particular about them.

Somebody real just acts and dresses and does everything in the way that makes them comfortable WITH THEMSELVES and don't give a flying flip what others think.

It'S Not Easy Being Green


Greetings, Kermit the Frog here
And today I'd like to tell you a little bit about the color green
Do you know what's green
Well I am for one thing
You see frogs are green, and I'm a frog
And that means that I'm green, you see

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'Cause you're not standing out
Like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like a mountain
Or important like a river
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder why wonder
I am green, and it'll do fine
It's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be
