I Act Like I Have It All Together

    Every Day

    And I sorta do. But even when I don't, no one knows. I am the picture of calm and rational in every situation. And in most situations that is true. But I can fake it well enough that I get through the situations when I don't have it together, and to inspire confidence in others...

    I Do

    I act like I have it all together, I act like I am strong enough to deal with everything that life is throwing my way, but I am not as strong as I let on. I cry, I hurt, and I am in pain. I act like I have it together, when deep down, I am a small little girl, who...

    The Undertoe Is Brutal

    On the outside - it may appear as I have a lot of things together. I have a great life - and I know that I should be able to let go sometimes and admit that I need help. I can't. I really think that I am losing it some days. I have...

    Its A Front.....

    .....I really do not have it together. I am weak, vulnerable, soft and very scared. Certainly though, I am a great actress! I play off of my big mouth and at times the things I am "together" about. I can pretend like no body's business that I have it all together...

    All 2 Gether

    I don't act like I have it all together.  The difference is I try managing the way I feel.  If I complain, it won't change anyway and I will be negative.  I have found this: Even happy, confident people have struggles of their own. Remember that everyone has their own...

    There isn't exactly a choice.

    **** happens. Growing up some bad things happened but everyone has their own secrets everyone is damaged at some point. I can't just stop and figure out how much is wrong with me. I don't have time to be sad about things and people I have lost. Everyday is just a step away from...
