A True Fallacy

It Begins As It Ended | December 15, 2009

As said by Dostoevsky, and I’m paraphrasing due to a lack of resourcefulness, the lives that we live beneath the surface are what make us who we are. I have lived two lives caught in endless contradicting conflict. My subconscious, a writhing dullard left crippled and inept from years of self-doubt, led me to constantly mold myself into whatever feigned personality was necessary. Only recently have I discovered that I spent years lying to myself about who I am.

My life as an artificial persona has come to an end. Instead, I have adopted a persona of truth, and no matter how bitter or painful the truth may be, my days of dishonesty are over. From now on I will speak nothing but the truth regardless of the circumstances, both here, and in this deceptive reality we live in. In the days to come, I will open up everything I have held close to me for so long now, and I only ask one favor in return. I wish to remain anonymous. Whether you’ve known me for twenty years or you’ve only stumbled onto this narcissistic plea for attention by mere circumstance, refer to me as nothing other than Fallacy. Though I would readily and happily admit to everything I have done in my life, there are others who would not appreciate being referred to as the hypocritical shits they have proven themselves to be. If I remain anonymous, there will be no reference point by which they could be pointed out; no harm done.

Before I depart, I would like to suggest that anyone who reads this partakes in this regiment of bittersweet honesty. You can only learn to trust when you have become trustworthy yourself, and though some people will hate you for not hiding behind the veil as they do, you may find that for once you truly have no reason to hate yourself.

    • Nope, don’t mind a bit. I’m not online a whole bunch, so I’m sorry for the delayed response. I’ll take a look at your blog soon, but for now I’m visiting the folks and stopped to check email.

  3. Dear, as nice as it is that your “life as an artificial persona has come to an end,” it saddens me to think that I did not know you at all since we have met, or that I may have been lied to about yourself. Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. But the idea that I was lied to is saddening.

    • Good to hear from you. People often will often love you for your virtues and despise you for your sins. i want to see if people will still think me honorable once they know every little crime I’ve committed. I’ll comment on your post as soon as I run my laptop to a wifi zone.

      • Well, the only thing (for me) is that I generally have a very open mind about people, long as they’re actually being truthful with me. Realizing later that they lied to me sucks. Not saying that you did, or I hate you for it or anything, but I have had experiences with friends who have lied about a lot of things before. Luckily for me they weren’t good friends to begin with.

        By the by…do you have an idea of who I am? I’m curious, I guess, as to how well you remember me. I didn’t really write a lot, though. Maybe you recognize my writing style or something, haha. I’ll tell you eventually if you can’t figure it out. Oh, and “I can be anonymous too” was me.
