Why lie ? Because it is easier than making something better in reality
When you accept yourself, when you accept your flaws, when you have courage to be vulnerable, the urge to lie will disappear

“If you feel exhausted, it’s not necessarily because there’s something wrong with you. Maybe you’re just running fast.”
Try instead to be patient, and flexible. Work hard. And above all, enjoy it.
stay curious, let your love of something pull you, but do not hastily give all of yourself and find there is nothing left to give. Don’t engage in the achievement rat race. Listen to praise from those you respect, but ignore it from those you don’t. Push back when society eggs you on. Focus on things that matter the most to you alone. Ignore fears of being an imposter — be authentic to yourself, that is enough. Keep your hands on the brakes. Enjoy your freedom of time and mind.
