How does one know if a person is sincere or not? And can one truly be sincere but not that sincere? Or there is only sincerity and just faking to be sincere?
I am not an expert in knowing if someone is sincere or not, but i think living and working in a very closed area where you work and live with thesame people for a long time will make you sensitive to sincerity.
Before, i was naive when it comes to sincerity.When someone is nice to me or offer help, i immediately think that they are sincere.But as time passes by and i get to know those people,i begin to question their sincerity.I used to think that everyone is just kind.Simple as that. Then as i got to know them either by spending time or observation, i usually doubt their sincerity.
We often show our sincerity through our feelings and actions.So, i think that if a person is sincere you will also see it in the way they behave.For example, Politicians who always say that they will do everything to help end poverty and yet they steal from the people. And people who say they love someone yet they cheat to their partners?what is that?
The other way to know the sincerity of a person is if they have a hidden agenda towards you. It’s hard to admit that we use one another,but it’s true. People sometimes pretend to be nice or pretend to help you because they need something in return.Knowing that helping someone could also help you.Can we truly be sincere to someone without asking or expecting something in return?
Also, people are sometimes sincere only because they are required to be sincere.knowing this, they force themselves to be sincere inorder to avoid being judged by other people.what would other people say when they see that you don’t care?well you have no choice but to pretend being sincere.The problem is,people who really know you will possibly not believe your act.
It is very difficult to believe someone’s sincerity when you know who they really are.The sad thing is,you will usually never believe them no matter what they do. That is why i don’t believe in a little or too much sincerity.It’s either you are sincere or you’re just faking it.
