Casting Light on Shadows: Navigating Deception and Trust in the Online World

Updated: Apr 5




Hey everyone,


How's life treating you lately? As for me, it's been a rollercoaster of events this past month, hence the title of this blog, "Catfish." Let me break it down for you. For the past three years, I've been consistently streaming my life online, every single day without fail. Whether it's on one app or another, I'm always connected. One of these platforms is a private app called "Fambase," where I interact with fans who've become friends over time. And that's where the story takes a twist.


I met someone on there, let's call her "X," whom I thought was a genuine friend. We chatted regularly, discussing all sorts of things beyond the usual small talk. She even mentioned planning a move to Florida, intrigued by my own love for the place. It seemed innocent enough, just two friends connecting. Little did I know, it was all a facade.

X seemed to integrate herself into my online circle, following me on various platforms and interacting with my other friends. However, after some of them offered her help with her move, she vanished without a trace for over a week. Suddenly, she resurfaced on social media, carrying on as if nothing happened, ignoring all attempts at contact. It was a surreal experience, realizing someone could weave such an elaborate lie without a second thought.


Initially, I brushed it off, as her deception didn't directly affect me. But it's the betrayal of trust that stings the most, especially when kind-hearted people were taken advantage of. This ordeal taught me a valuable lesson – the internet can be a deceptive place, where true intentions remain veiled behind screens.


Despite my typically closed-off nature when it comes to personal relationships, this incident has made me even more cautious. While I continue to share my life online, I'll be more discerning about who I let into my inner circle. However, I'm grateful for this encounter in a strange way. It serves as a reminder to stay vigilant and maintain a positive outlook, even when faced with deceit.


So, to all of you who've stuck by me through thick and thin, thank you. Your support means the world to me, and no amount of deceit can tarnish the genuine connections we've built. As I navigate through the highs and lows of life, I'll keep my guard up while remaining open to the good that still exists in the world.


Until next time,


Blessed Be!
