If you could see inside me and know who I really am, you would not like me. That’s the fear I lived with for a long while, so I agreed when I did not agree. I said “yes”, when I wanted to say “no”. I ate food I really did not like. I spent time with people I’d rather not be with. I spent money on things I really did not want to spend it on. WHY? Because I wanted to be what others wanted me to be. I wanted them to like me. One of the most freeing turnabout’s of my life came when I began to stop faking it so much. The result is I like myself more and the big surprise is others like me better now too.
