Yup... I'm pretending I'm ok with way more things than I am... I'm stressed now more than ever, but it's ok. I put on a strong face... I pretend I don't see what's going on around me... I pretend I'm ok with everything that's going on and what all I've agreed to.

But I'm not. I'm not okay with the lies. I'm not okay with the lies by omission. I'm not okay with just not knowing and ignoring reality around me. I'm NOT okay with it anymore.

But what can I do? I could walk away and never look back. That sure would solve the problems. But I won't. I can't. So instead... I must continue dealing, no matter how much it hurts

Oh Cari.. I hate knowing you're in personal turmoil but I'd bet that's nothing compared to living it, eh? If you're ever wanting too, please feel free to pm me...

Cari-
It is okay to own your feelings whatever they are, to give them a voice & to honor them. I don' tknow exactly what your particular hard time is about - but I knwo htat no matter the problem, it is okay to be honest - sometimes it's more than okay - it's exactly what is needed.

I don't know what else to tell you really since I don't know what it pertains to. But believe me - there is NO point in doing things or not saying things, etc in order to please others. People who are worth it want your honesty, no matter what that is & others aren't worth trying to please at he espense of yourself.

I am sorry for your personal turmoil & I will pray that you find a clear resolution.

Much love-
