The cruelest thing anyone has ever said to me. Unintential though it was.
I was given this advice by a colleague when leaving my job at a mental hospital. In a rather conspiritorial way he simply said ‘good luck, and don’t live a lie.’
So ever since, whatever I’ve been doing with my life, I’ve wondered ‘am I living a lie?’
Did he just mean don’t get fooled by religion or always follow your dream, don’t get caught in the rat-race or never pretend to be something you are not. Can you be happy if you are living a lie? Makes you wonder doesn’t it.
