Fake It ’til You Make It.

In the words of Albert Schweitzer:  “The path of awakening is not about becoming who you are.  Rather it is about unbecoming who you are not.”  Faking it until you make it can be a valuable tool in unbecoming the person you were forced to be by those around you or circumstances.  It can work but only if we truly see ourselves changing as a result.  If all we want to do is impress others, the approach is likely to backfire.  The same holds true at the communal level.  We may not be as inclusive and anti-racist as we aspire to be, so we may need to fake it until we make it, but only if we are serious about our willingness to change.
