I 'm Here to Be Real

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,582 People

    In my 'real' life, I am a wife

    and mother. A daughter, a neighbor, a young woman. Most people I associate with probably see me as quiet and polite, maybe even shy. No one but my husband has even scratched the surface.

    I am myself all the time.

    Sometimes inappropriate, sometimes too loud, sometimes too quiet. I am human and I make mistakes, but I believe in keeping it real and never intend to insult or offend.

    If it weren't so, it would have a list of logical implications. I start the list but anyone can feel free to add to this... 1) I don't know how to use my time effectively 2) I love fooling around people and do not care about the consequences. 3) I disrespect my qualities 4) I...

    People are just human

    So many folks out there search

    for someone who will "be real" with them. But when they find that person, that immediately want the person to sugarcoat everything. How can you expect a complete stranger to be real with you if you aren't being real with yourself?

    While I may withhold some important details to

    protect my anonymity, EVERYTHING you see about me and by me is real; it's me, pure and authentic. I know that not everybody is here to necessarily be their authentic selves, but those are not my friends.

    And not just here, on EP.

    I am the type of person who will be real every place lol. Sometimes, I'm too real about things, but I'm not Willy Wonka, so I don't sugar coat anything. I do use tact, however, because people who are intentionally cruel are just as bad as fakes, in my opinion.
