Thoughts on this word
I read a quote from Cheryl Hughes that said “the truly scary thing about undiscovered lies is that they have a great capacity to diminish us than exposed ones. They erode our strength, our self-esteem, our very foundation.” Sometimes we are unhappy with ourselves so we create these “fake versions” of us in order to impress other people. We might pretend to be skilled at something or conceal an unfavorable trait we possess, but every time we do this we fail to recognize the true beauty of who we are and what we could be.
We need to stop hiding and start living. If you are ashamed of something then stop putting it on the back burner for no one to see and start making steps to fix it. Hiding things can be exhausting and the longer you try to keep it hidden the more you will start to hate yourself. The truth can be ugly, but locking it away in a closet won’t make it any prettier. Being truthful is the foundation to any relationship, without truth there can be no real love. If you want to stop hating things about yourself than stop lying, pretending, and locking things away. Make the choice to be true to who you really are and be happy in your own skin.
