Happy New Year, fellow crooks.
We try to combat not being enough by pleasing, and performing, and perfecting.
We go through our lives trying to be who we think we’re supposed to be,
doing and saying what we think people want to hear,
putting on whatever mask or face we think we need to put on for that moment.
And what that leaves us is, exhausted.
