You know who I'm talking about. The people that have perfect lives, perfect marriages/relationships, perfect families, perfect homes. I'm sure that some of those people actually do have perfect lives. But I'm willing to bet that the majority of them do not.
I didn't. I was faking my way through my life...doing everything I could to make it appear harmonious, wonderful, grand. And everyone believed me (I think?). The majority of the time, it wasn't any of those things. And I realized that the faking was hurting me.
I wasn't healthy physically, mentally or emotionally. Everything about me was suffering, including my fake/perfect life.
So I made changes, very difficult changes, but changes none the less.
And now I refuse, yes, REFUSE, to be put into a position where my health suffers so that appearances can be upheld. I'm getting pretty darn good at saying NO to people/ideas/interactions that do not help make me a better person.
I choose to be happy and feel happy on the inside, knowing that my internal sunshine, when well lit, will shine to my outsides.
Friends, be true to you. YOU are amazing. Be happy inside and out!
Have an awesome day!
P.S. Sorry if this is a bit grumpy pants. V-D brings out the worst in me.
