    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...

    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...

    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...

    I do. But like tonight,

    when every definition of being a teenager slap me with reality, I would cry until my body won't let me anymore. Until my eyes swell with heavy weight of fear and disappointment. My head would fell so tight that it would squeeze every emotions to the numbness. Then nothing. I...

    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...

    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...

    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...
