Open Your Mouth And Speak!

To everyone living a lie

Just say something.


It doesn’t matter what words depart from your lips.

Just make sure it’s the truth.

Because it’s so exhausting being anyone other than yourself.

Trust me, I know!

I had been pretending to be somebody I was not, trying to please people who could never be pleased, trying to save people who could never be saved, trying to persuade people who were never gonna love me to love me, faking happiness during times of misery, and saying yes when what I actually meant was no.

It was difficult.

Difficult to live in this way.

Raise your hand if you have lived or are living a lie.


For a minute there I thought it was only just me.

I hope this helps you

Love lychee
