I’ve been thinking recently about who we really know in our lives.
Are we sure we are seeing the real person?
Ask yourself the question
Who do you really know?
I imagine that the number is quite small.
Often you find that the public persona is not really the truth.
How many times have we be surprised by news headlines. Learning that a person we believed to be kind, great and fantastic is in fact a cruel hard abuser.
Pop starts we have worshipped being truly sick individuals.
Who we see is not always who we really are?
The mom at the school playground full of smiles and laughter goes home crying suffering from depression.
The wife who seems so happy and in love is actually a victim of spousal abuse.
We really don’t know what happens behind closed doors.
I asked myself the question.
Who do people see when they see me?
I’m not sure.
I am a person who wears her heart on her sleeve. I am known to tell you my life’s story in the first five minutes of meeting.
But do I really share my all?
Do I confess that at times I feel like a complete failure. Motherhood is harder than I ever imagined and as much as I love it I desperately crave a break now and again.
Do I tell you the man that I married drives me insane with his RC obsession and that I’m tired of hearing lap times or speed controller turns and seriously if he forgets something once more I may go slightly insane.
Do I mention that friendship scares the pants of me. That I am convinced I will screw it up and that generally I’m not very likeable.
The truth is we all have hidden sides parts that lurk in the shadows. Yet those hidden sides effect our lives more than we realise.
Maybe it’s time we brought them
Into the light.
Building relationships that are true.
Letting people see who we really are.
I honestly believe this is the key to happiness. When you surround yourself with people who really know you it allows you to be.
So I’m saying this is me, I am mixed up lady and that is perfectly ok.
I’m tired of living behind closed doors.
Life is such a gift and I want to live it fully.
So join me open those doors swing open those windows and let’s embrace we are truly are.
Build true relationships that are transparent.
And in our transparently let us find fulfilment.
