.many times we find ourselves lying to the most important person that matters; us*. why do we continue to go on and tell ourselves things are one way when we know they aren't, or even if we feel a certain way, we tell ourselves that we don't. when will we be able to stop pretending and be what we really are? i found myself thinking about this while i took a JOURNEY* to hampton and i've discovered that i have been guilty of pretending.
pretend:to appear falsely, as to deceive
.if at the end of the day when you close your eyes to sleep you are alone. why must you pretend with yourself? it seems funny that one would deceive themself but yet it happens all the time. i've pretended time and time again not to care, or that i'm a certain person that i'm not and i've discovered that pretending is wack! i've learned throughout the past 2 years that pretending is something that i will no longer do. if i'm being treated one way; i'm not going to pretend that it doesn't bother me, or i won't pretend that i like something when i actually don't.
but when will you stop pretending? when will you just let the real you live? why hold what you really love and who you really are inside because of fear? just be you. at the end of the day, you are all you have..
