Ever wake up, feeling like a new person? I had this theory a while back. Maybe our souls refresh themselves. Today is a new day, but how new? Sure, I can go through the same old rhythms and the same dull routines, but that doesn’t mean I’m the same guy who did this same old shit yesterday. Does it?
“Is is what it is.”
“That’s the business for you.”
“The process was set up this way for a reason.”
Level with it all you want. Make excuses. Lie to yourself if it helps you deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with putting yourself out there as an asset, conforming your words to match what they want them to be, and making yourself a whore to the “business”.
