Lately I have been “trying” to be “real.”
I would never go so far as saying that normally I am fake, but sometimes when situations are tough, sometimes when relationships are frustrating, sometimes when life isn’t fair, I can be fake-ish. (I know, I know, that really isn’t a word, but why don’t you just give me a break?)
And lately in the midst of trouble, frustration, and uncertainty, when I might have glossed over what I really think, what I really mean, or what I typically hold back, I have tried to stand firm, get my point across, and be “real.”
And it has felt great.
Yes, I have had some awkward moments, some tough conversations, and some reality checks but there is one thing I have not had. Regrets.
And so I am going to keep pressing on in my search for “real.”
So tell me, have you forced yourself into any tough conversations lately? Any regrets?
