45. Practicing vs Pretending
Discover the difference between pretending and practicing in order to create authentic connections, challenge your own limitations, and embrace the journey of becoming.
Pretending is often used as a method of avoiding the emotion that comes with a situation, such as pretending to be kind when really we are irritated by something. Practicing on the other hand is about acknowledging these emotions and intentionally choosing a better future out of love for ourselves. It is about being honest and allowing ourselves to be seen and heard in order to build deeper connections with ourselves and others. Ultimately it is about being real and practicing the skill of having our own back by embracing the messy and the amazing of ourselves.
“Becoming is more important about the journey than the destination.”
