“Why do you pretend?”
“Because I can’t do what I want to.”
“When I don’t pretend and do what I want to, people treat me as if I were not one of them. When I’m true to myself and choose not to pretend, then they begin to doubt in all what I do.”
“The problem, as it seems, is not you can’t do what you want to, but trying to be accepted by everyone around you in a way you think you should be,” said the master, and walked away.
“And perhaps that’s why it’s better to choose to pretend.”
