No More Faking It!
We all need that friend in our life that will tell it like it is, no sugar coating, no enabling, just straight up be real with us. The reason we need such friend, is because we be faking it! Look, we all have some type of defect we are dealing with, maybe even more than just one. Yet, we walk around faking it all day…everyday. Ok, you may be thinking, I don’t know what she’s talking about, I don’t have any defects. And it is alright…that is, if you want to remain in denial. But, I am here in a friendly capacity and what kind of friend would I be if I did not tell you the truth.
So, it has been determined we all have these defects in our lives and honestly, we can’t make all the changes we need to make on our own, so in order to change the defects we need help. The help of a good friend, someone you can trust and they trust you, someone who will be straight up real with you and you straight up real with them. Someone who won’t judge you nor you judge them, but to be loving and honest with each other, because they want to see you get better and you would want the same for them.
There are things in our lives that we are never going to be able to change on our own, mostly those things that are the hardest in our life and that we don’t want anyone else to know about. Yet, the truth is you will never get over those things unless you share them with someone. Now, I am not saying you go and tell everybody. Naw! You just need to find that one person who you trust and they trust you.
It must be someone who will keep the conversation in total confidence and who will continue to love and support you unconditionally, as well as, pray for you along the way. You must agree somewhat that in order to start the healing; we have to do some revealing. If we seriously want to change those deep pains in our hearts and those defects in our lives, we are going to have to truly face our fears and become totally honest. No more faking it! You have to get real with it.
The choice is yours, you can go through life pretending like you have it all together or that you are working on getting it together, but you really never get it together as long as you keep pretending to have it all together. So, if there is some defect within that you deeply want to change; then no more faking it, I want you to find that person you can trust and start talking. Let it all out, it can’t hurt and it just might repair those defects and make things all better.
