Most of the time, we’re in a desperate struggle to hide our truth from everyone else. Even the ones we love. We cringe and utter silent thought-prayers, hoping no one will notice the flaws that are painfully obvious to us.
And that doesn’t even scratch the surface.
We laugh about our inner flaws, because we’re terrified we’ll be judged. (Or maybe we’re just terrified.)
Ha! We laugh.
- “Love that chocolate! Nom, nom, nom.” [Can’t shake the weight. Why bother anymore?"]
- “Starbucks is my church.” [Coffee is my God.]
- “Those Downton Abbey maids work so hard. How is that fair?” [I don’t tip waitresses. They need to get a real job.]
- “Making love by candlelight is so sexy.” [You can’t tell I’m imagining it’s someone else.]
Why are we hiding? Why aren’t we unashamed?
