I've said I'm fine when I'm really not...times when I've needed help. I've said I'm tired when really? I just can't take it anymore. I've said I've already eaten when actually I hadn't eaten in days. I've pushed people away wanting them to fight me and stay. I've worn sweaters to hide my scars and I've promised I'm better and that I'm okay when I just want to go away.
I've lied...have you?
Why did you lie? How can we get the help we need, the understanding we crave...when we lie? You know it's a lie but you say it anyway...why?
So how do we change this? Are you willing to take the risks to open up? To share how you're really feeling? To find someone you can talk to? Are you able to be honest with how you're really feeling and what you're needing? Are you willing to do the work in your life so you don't have to lie anymore?
We say others just don't understand, but how can they if we keep lying? Truth is they can't. But fear of rejection, fear of being made fun, fear of being left behind...keeps us silent and it makes us lie. Things won't change until we take the steps to be honest about how we're feeling. Can you do it?
take good care of you please
