John 2:24-25 But Jesus on his part would not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to testify about anyone; for he himself knew what was in everyone.
Pretending takes a tremendous amount of focus and energy. That's why children are so adept at it. I don't think we ever lose the fuel for imagination. Instead, I think we use it up in unnecessary and unhelpful places in our lives. We spend so much creative capital on a persona we either want to convey, or think others want us to be, that there's no imaginative fuel left. When we learn to be and be comfortable with who we really are, we will have much more passion from which our creative souls can emerge. We will also have a much keener awareness of the true and false selves revealed in others. © 2017 Todd Jenkins
