Nobody benefits from the fake version of you
Not you, nor anyone else.
Let go of that crafted version of you; that projected veneer that does not give long term benefit to you and those around you. It’s a game. It creates in others the wrong expectations. It makes promises you can’t fulfill. It distorts the greater genius you have inside.
You’re not fake, so don’t pretend. People see through it eventually. They want to engage with the real you.
And, today, if you don’t particularly like the real version of you, is it time to do some home improvement?
