You're not fake if you're trying.
Read that again --
'cause I feel like you might need to;
'cause I feel that I need to.
Be reminded that
just because I falter doesn't mean I'm not trying like hell not to.
That just because I yell a lot doesn't mean I'm not working on it.
That just because I can be
and periodically self-absorbed,
doesn't mean I'm not breaking my back working towards improving myself as a
and so much more to so many others.
This message is for anyone who, on the daily, longs to be a better version of themself but finds themself stuck making the same dang mistakes --
You're not a phony, and your pursuit of self-transformation ain't a hoax or for show.
It's that personal growth IS JUST THAT HARD, and it takes a while.
So be patient with yourself and be patient with those who don't understand the process--your process.
You're not fake if you're trying, so keep at it because putting in effort, well, it's the realest thing you can ever do.
