How much of our interactions are genuine? Does anyone really express what they feel? There are many ways to live fiction. One can distract truth-seekers by talking about the deeds of others, commonly know as living vicariously. Another option is creating a story by exaggerating, which impresses others so much that they don't ask personal questions. One can also be stand-offish or have no "personality". Or, be aggressive and ask all of the questions so you are never asked. There are many options for the majority who do not live reality (including me) and pure reality may be fiction. A useful self-test is: "If people could read my mind would I be afraid?" or would it roughly represent what I convey to others. Non-fiction can not only be interesting but can also be fun and attractive. Live it!
