In the world of social media, we are constantly in front of other people. There’s a lot of pressure to always be “on,” which breeds a pressure to perform. In response to this, a “fake it till you make it” gospel has formed.
I get the sentiment. Sometimes if we don’t “fake it” we’ll never have the confidence to create anything. But I think this message is incomplete and has some dangers to it.
If we aren’t careful, adopting this gospel can hurt writers, bloggers and even our messages.
