Flaws are unacceptable in our society. If you show them, you’re showing you’re not good enough.
I think it’s insecurity. It take a huge amount of bravery to be genuine and show people your flaws or perceived weaknesses. We live in a very judgmental world, and I suppose sometimes it’s easier to pretend rather than risk rejection.
The only time I ever really felt like a fit in anywhere was when I was trying to portray myself as perfect, everyone brought it too but then something happened to me & i couldn't keep the charade anymore it was too draining, i had so much going on internally. Don't really feel like i've ever fit in since. I feel like all anyone sees are my flaws now. I try to be to be positive but it's alot harder these days.
Maybe the things that you deem as flaws other people just see as a part of life. My life isn't perfect, I'm not perfect but I don't have any major flaws and I am pretty content with who I am...so maybe not everyone is acting, maybe they are confident with who they are!
The more insecure I feel, the more confident I act. Also, the more miserable I feel, the more I talk up the positives as a way to stop me feeling depressed. It’s self medication.
