I'm speaking about the exterior signs of interior healing, when I say to fake it.
A broken leg is a broken leg, you can't fake walking on a broken leg. Time must heal the physical structure. If something is broken inside, how is
this manifested? And what are the signs of a healed spirit? A willingness to go forward? A smile?
Getting up, doing something, ANYthing, painting a fake smile on our face, even when we have to force ourselves to do it...is faking it. Trudging our
way through. But, without realizing it, these small steps can start the process of healing an interior wound. And by the way, I didn't make that line
up., it's a fairly common line from therapists. "If ya can't make it, fake it". It's a situational defense mechanism, a coping mechanism for people
struggling with interior wounds that can paralyze their lives.
I'd rather see someone moving along, faking it in the short term, than continuing to spin their cocoon, withdrawing into their personal abyss, where
alone, they wither, and eventually die. (Metaphorically speaking)
