Sometimes we say things over and over again until we believe them. Things we wish were true, things we're trying to make true. It's as if repetition of a statement proves its factuality.
Sometimes we say things over and over again to other people until they believe them. And heck, if everyone else believes, why shouldn't we?
Sometimes we say things over and over again, out loud and in our heads, trying desperately to persuade ourselves of their truth. Sometimes we want so badly to convince ourselves that we convince ourselves that we have convinced ourselves. Sometimes we buy it. Sometimes we take our wishful thinking and make it our reality.
But sometimes there's a little piece of our hearts, way deep down, that's not so sure.
