Be In Your Own Skin

Be In Your Own Skin

I don’t surround myself with people who are constantly positive, always smiling to mask the bullshit life they actually have. I prefer people who are real, honest and raw. I don’t want anyone who walks on eggshells around me. If your day sucks, I want to hear about why it sucks so I can help make it better. If you’re not really happy, don’t fake a smile on my behalf. I’d rather you spill your guts with tears every day, until your smile is real because I don’t care about the show, the disguise, the politically correctness. If you’re in my life, I want you to be in your own skin.

    I don’t hide my emotions, but I know when and what to say. Don’t like drama…don’t like to complain…if I’m in a not-so-good mood, or don’t feel well, I’ll go home – where I usually am, anyway. It’s one thing to be honest, another to just whine about basically nothing. } )

    All well and good, but for decades I have been surrounded by people who “let it all hang out”. Guess what? That’s ALL they do- bitch, piss and moan; no matter how trivial the “hurt,” it dominates the conversation. AND IT CASTS A PALL, ITBRINGS OTHERS DOWN. Call me shallow, uncaring, whatever- I DO NOT CARE ANYMORE. Because trying to care, to feel sympathy, empathy- whatever, has just led me to be as damaged, If you are going through REAL pain, then, yes, share; but if you have to have a breakdown because your peas aretouching your mashed potatos (yes, I experienced this with a FORMER friend), then, you need to “s girlfriend either learn restraint or stay home. Be real, but do not be a snowflake.
