Lie! There's always that one person who sees past your smile, pointless rambling and picture perfect life.
Welcome! How ever you stumbled across this site, honored to have you here.
“There are countless ways we protect ourselves from perceivable threats. Pretending to be someone we're not, avoiding close relationships, keeping superficial conversations.”
At what point do we start being real. Tell the truth, live our truth. Ever asked yourself why you do everything you do? Honestly, we've been pressured most of our lives to fit in, to assimilate into a system that is centered on monetary gain, material value, and use of bodies as commodities. Many have forgotten where true worth lies and beauty emanates.
When did we start believing that the color of our skin, a paycheck, where we grew up or went to school had any credence on our ability for greatness in this world.
Shouldn't value be determined by what we cannot easily replace? What about loyalty, trust, freedom, peace of mind, kindness, quality time, meaningful relationships. Real beauty doesn't fade with time, our value increases like rare gems formed through intense heat and pressure. Adversity makes us who we are, pain lets us know we are alive. As long as we are alive there is hope, so we never give up. We are gems in the earth.
