So at what point does appropriate behavior become “acting”? “Adapting to your social environment”, versus “being fake”?
Is it a spectrum? Are you still “yourself” when you take a different tone to your grandmother, than to your boss? At what point is your integrity at stake?
Are you “lying” if you only show happy pictures on your Instagram?
Another gray area in life. Kids look at their parents, and [unconsciously] presume that that’s the right amount of acting. Oh! So that’s how this social sh*t works.
