Chameleons Aren’t Inauthentic. They’re Smart.
Have you ever heard of a chameleon with an identity crisis? Do you think other animals accuse them of being flakes because they change their colours to suit the world around them? No? Then why are you beating yourself up for faking it once in a while? Ever consider the possibility that in certain circumstances, blending in might actually be a contribution? Or a way to manipulate someone into choosing greater for themselves? It may be a capacity you have. It certainly would create more … *gasp* … EASE… for you, but you wouldn’t want that, would you? If you’re convinced that you must, at all times, be your most true self in every moment, you might just be missing opportunities to blend in and change the world ever so quietly.
