Author and actor Miranda Keeling posted this on Mastodon, where she frequently posts interesting fragments of conversation she overhears in everyday life:

Woman in a supermarket: Fake it til you can’t be bothered anymore, and then just be yourself.

I originally posted this to my Mastodon account.
