We pretend far too often to appear to be something we are not! Or to be someone we are not! Among humanity it appears to be a common theme to ‘put on a false-face’ when we are among family and friends!
Why is that the case, though? Why can’t we be exactly the person we were born to be? The man or woman that God created us to be from birth? Do we long to emulate others because we are not satisfied with our own lives?
Perhaps we try to mask our true feelings and motives in order to protect the other person or, maybe, to protect ourselves!
Whatever the case, we are only serving to deceive those we are attempting to impress…including us! Being honest in ‘all things’ will always work! We just need a little wisdom to match the situation!
When we were children we loved to pretend! I certainly did! My imagination was quite active and it saw no bounds, apparently! As an adult, however, pretending never allows us to be grounded!
We very often suffer humiliation when we are trying to mask who we truly are and, in addition, only create mistrust in others!
I have learned through my entire adult life that people are looking for a genuine person! An honest person! They rarely see that in anyone so it’s a treat and a surprise when we display integrity to them!
I have worked alongside many who used the term….”be real”….and they wanted you to be honest! Don’t play games! Games are for kids, just like that cereal!
So I guess what Im trying to convey here is, we all need to show an honest, ‘real’, person to whomever we come into contact with!
Our eyes give us away many times anyway! As the saying goes….”the eyes are the window of the soul”, so it would serve us all to just…
