Just Write - Truth

Some days I feel somewhat misunderstood.

Some days I think people look at me like I have it knocked and I want to tell them, no one has it knocked. Everyone has their own battles to fight, some are smaller than others, but we all have them.

Some days I feel like things I say or things I do are the wrong things. Some days I feel like all I do is let people down.

Some days I feel like I have to defend choices I make for my own health and well being or for the sake of my husband's.

Some days I feel like all I want to do is scream.

Some days I feel like things around me are changing and it's out of my control. And other times I want to embrace those changes.

Some days I feel like I am trying to fit myself into a cookie cutter image that I don't even know where it came from.

Some days, like today, I just want to be honest. I am not perfect. I am who I am and I just want to be accepted as I am. I make mistakes sometimes. I am only human.

Some days I am afraid to admit these things, to write them, to hit submit. But other days I know it's healthy and it is ok. So today is one of those days.

Most days are not like these "some days". But they do come. I put one foot in front of the other and march on when they do. Because the next day is a new day. A new day.




Linking up to "Just Write" again today. Visit Heather at the EO to read other posts or to submit your own.

And as always on a heavier post like this I need to put a disclaimer that I AM OK. I am just in a season of up and downness and sometimes I need to write about it. Thanks for reading, don't worry, I don't need the little men in white coats. :)

I think we're all exactly like this. We don't all hit publish because some days it's the wrong thing to do. I really enjoyed this because it reinforced my belief that we all pretty much want the same things & each of us is on a different path to get there.

And this is why we blog, right? To have these outlets for these days when we just want to throw our hands up in the air and say AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

I hope you are doing ok and that you do tell everyone you are just human.......no one fits into a 'cookie cutter' shape of who we think others want us to be, but people try to kid themselves that they do!!!!!!
You are you, amazing and perfect just as that, YOU!! Nothing more nothing less!!!!!!

I know what you mean. I agree with Jes too...I will always love you for you! Like you said in the toast at my wedding (and I still agree today and always will be) "You are the Bert to my Ernie, the Alto to my Soprano..." I love you!!!
