Don’t fake it til you make it
I don’t want you to fake it til you make it.
I don’t want you to take me for a ride. I don’t want us to waste our time building a relationship that turns out to be a house of cards.
How you choose to live is your choice, but I don’t want to be complicit in your own self-deception. I’m not interested in sharing those ill-gotten rewards, or in being subject to its undesirable consequences.
I’ll never ask you to, so don’t fake it til you make it for me. Or with me.
Don’t not fake it for me though.
Be authentic to yourself.
Be honest with yourself.
Be your best self.
Act in such a way as to preserve your integrity. It’s all you have, and it’s how I’ll remember you.
