I’m a rock.
Go ahead and sear me.
I won’t budge an inch, because I’m a rock.
Go ahead and beat me up. I’m a solid rock.
Go ahead and leave me in the dark. I’m a rock that will shine all alone.
I don’t break, ash, nor decay as I go against nature’s way.
I’m a diamond.
Nah, it’s not garbage advice. This saying can also mean the same as “facing” it.
Fake the joy when you’re sad. You’ll eventually feel happy.
Fake the courage when you’re scared/weak. You’ll eventually feel brave.
Fake it ’til you make it. I’ve overcome a lot by keeping this in my mind.
