Being me


I am going to be me. Funny, I put out my real self to people and get rejected. But the ones who do not reject me are my real friends. I have often been tempted to put on my Barbie mask for the world. I have often tried to make everyone happy. But all the while, I have also let my true self shine through. I will admit my flaws. I will open up and talk about my struggles. Even as a therapist, I am self-disclosing (careful to not make my client my very own therapist). I believe this is the right way to live. I was created to be me. I was created with flaws. I make mistakes. Admitting them is not hard for me. Being rejected for them is. Dating seems to be the place where this all comes to a head. I open up about who I am, and am summarily rejected. I do hate that. Still, I will be me, and open about who I am. Because I would rather have a true friend or two, than to have a hoard of people who do not know me.
