I’ve never really resonated with this whole idea of faking it ‘til you make it. I feel like it implies that there is a version of you (or worse yet, someone else) that you should strive to be instead & that you don’t inherently have the ability in the fullness of who you are in the present moment to do & be wonderful things. I don’t want to pretend that I don’t feel weak when I feel weak because I’m finding so much strength & hope in my vulnerability in the midst of feeling weak. I want to own how I feel & where I am at & not fake it to seem different or more than or not so much. . . Sure, I can see how it applies to some stuff in running a business like how to talk about money, how to develop products & practical, logistical things like that. But in reality, faking it can mean a whole lot of mistakes & messy things so it’s probably in your best interest to just be humble, admit what you don’t know & ask for guidance & help when you’re struggling. Being a business owner, being an artist, heck being a human being can feel really lonely a lot of the time. Why would we want to fake it & become even more of an island unto ourselves?
