“Friends Will Sell Your Secrets for Some”

Once again this week’s song comes from a friend’s recommendation. “Transparent Soul” talks about fake friends, something I’ve often had paranoia about. It an annoyingly common anxiety of mine that people don’t like me and are just putting up with me because it’s easier than having an awkward conversation. The logic side of my brain knows better. But that doesn’t erase the worries. In the lyrics for this song it seems clear that Willow has to deal with the reality and the anxiety of having fake friends. That’s probably not a big surprise when you consider that she’s been famous her whole life by being the daughter of celebrities before she started exploring talents that would bring her fame of her own.

Writing Prompt: Write about the anxiety or reality of having fake friends. Maybe deal with both the anxiety and the reality in your writing.
