"Most people can't do it; cover up their true feelings, pretend they're something they're not. But it doesn't change who you are. Or what you are. If you hate what you are you'll do anything to deny it. You'll feed the line until it becomes real. But who you are doesn't go away. It waits for you. We put so much work to cover up whats there. A new coat of paint on rotted wood. Creative accounting. The comb-over. But then you realize that lie you spent so much time crafting... in the end, the only person your lie ever fools, is you."
