I disagree most with the statement ‘Pretending to be someone you’re not makes you a weak person’. Acting like another person doesn’t make you weak at all, in fact it causes you to experience things that may be very hard to take in, in which case you have to be strong. Actors pretend to be other people all the time, so are they weak people? Exactly, they aren’t. You can also pretend to be people for your own fun, like dressing up on Halloween in costumes. It’s still not being weak if you are trying to be someone else to hide from yourself, but if this is happening, try to be yourself because you should be proud of who you are. All in all, I highly disagree with this statement.
