Ive had this advice thrown at me more times than I can count. So what do you think of the "fake it til you make it" philosophy? Is there something to it or is it all bullshit?

personally i cant stand this advice. mainly because in order for it to work you have to pretty much weld your mask to your face. take it a step beyond hiding your emotions into delusional territory; happy even if you are miserable and actually believe you are truly happy just to keep others in a good enough mood to like you. then when you finally do make it (which may or may not happen) you will quickly realize that you cant take off your mask and keep the friends you made. once you start to let your true self out, the people who's respect you've worked so hard to earn goes down the drain in seconds. at that point I decided it wasn't worth it and that I'd rather be true to myself even if I end up all alone. but that's just me. what's your story?

The problem i've had with faking it til i make it is that people now see me as much stronger and together than I really am. people now put all of the responsibility on me, not taking into consideration that I am a human being with feelings who needs a break... I fake confidence and fake knowing what i'm doing to get by and stay afloat which i think has been so helpful throughout life but it is very draining, and people start depending on you and don't really want to hear your sob stories anymore lol. i think that's probably why i got into emo, so i can finally have an outlet to let my feelings out/feel heard. i definitely feel you about the rather being alone and true to myself though...
