Is it sincere or just trite words?
Often people don’t know what to say so they just speak words. Usually when people say, “Have a nice day”, they are usually sincere, just leaving, being sarcastic, uttering meaningless words.
When someone says to you that, “You are a member of our family”, what do you think? Does that mean, “I’m pleased to be a member of the family.
But I’m not a member of your family”, “family members are not inducted, they are either born to or marry into”, “that sounds phony and superficial”.
When you see someone and they ask, “How are you”, often it is either sincere, superficial, not sincere, meaningless, offensive for its lack of sincerity?
Often when someone wishes you “good luck”, it is either sincere, superficial, not sincere, meaningless, offensive for its lack of sincerity.
Can you think of an example of a generally sincere group or sincere individual? how about an example of a generally insincere group or insincere individual?
And, about those trite words from superficial people, I have this to add….
