What Exactly Should I Share With Others?
Sometimes, my family is a mess.
I don’t mean we are physically messy. Basically, we are a very neat group of people. My ex was in the US Army. Messiness did NOT fit with his ethos or with his training overall.
No. I’m not talking physical clutter.
I’m talking about the emotional and spiritual stuff. Sometimes – very frequently, actually – the way we are in private does not match who we are presenting ourselves to be.
We’re not attempting to lie or be dishonest. That’s not the case at all. Still…what happens almost daily is that we only show others that which we want them to see..
…and that side is always rosy, beautiful, fun, and attractive. I think most people do that. But it’s starting to wear on me. That is not how I would like to live. There has got to be a balance between what we present and who we actually are.
