Authentically imperfect is deliciously human

Day 82/366 days Towards Self-Mastery. Mood: resolved

What do you think of this concept of acting "as if"? What do you think is its purpose?

To be sure, I'm fairly literal in my approach to life so I might have the wrong end of the stick on this.

From my perspective, when it comes to authenticity, this idea of "acting as if" brings authenticity unstuck.

Is there merit in the idea of tricking your subconscious by using your imagination to pretend you are something you're not. Not to mention, tricking others at the same time. It doesn't sit well with me. I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way.
