No Apologies For Who I Am

  I have to say I've found that with getting older I am becoming more and more comfortable in my own skin. As I continue to experience life the lies of youth are continually being uncovered for what they are and it feels great to see the truth. There is no one to fear.....

 Recently a friend asked me to fill in for her bunco group and I said no. She asked what plans I had and I told her that I had nothing planned. I was honest and said spending my friday with a group of women I don't know did not sound appealing to me. I would rather spend that time with women I know well and I feel better after having spent time with them.  I let her know there are times when I'm all for meeting new people but I'm not in one of those times right now.

 She appreciated the honesty and I felt good knowing myslef well enough to speak the truth.

I envy you, I'm almost 27 years old and still have this deep fear of offending people with my actions or words. What is so scary about honesty? Were taught growing up to basically lie to people in order to spare thier feelings but at the same time chastized for not telling the truth!<br />

I should really start practicing what I preach and feel inside.<br />

Thanks for the share and eye opening remarks :)
