Faking it



They want me to pretend that all is well.
They want me to put on a show.
They don’t want to hear the truth.
They want me to earn my paycheck by telling lies.

I can’t sell something I don’t believe in.
I can’t fake my enthusiasm.
I can’t keep up this act for much longer.
I’m convinced I’m in the wrong profession.
It’s definitely time to move on.

    1. Thank you.
      I’ve been deliberating this for some time but now I have enough evidence to support my decision.

      How has your week been so far?

      1. I hope you find something that suits you a whole lot better πŸ™‚
        My week was tiresome but steady. Emotionally a bit weird (ups and downs) but all in all I shouldn’t complain (so I won’t, haha)

      2. You’re only human dear. We all need to vent sometimes. I’m here if you need an ear. I appreciate that you’re always sending words if love and encouragement. I value that immensely.

        I just feel if somebody feels low it’s not adding to their well-being by being negative. There are always sunny sides to everything, but sometimes we don’t see it and it helps if someone else does. Wishing you a great weekend! πŸ™‚

      1. It’s been a rough week.
        If I were a drinker I’d have gone through several bottles of wine by now 😁
        Hoping for a better week to come.
