Fake It 'till You Make It

time and time again i have felt like i was bleeding inside... and plaster a smile on my face to hide the fact.  and around people i dont really know well, i still do.  it is just so much easier than dealing with their pity.  sympathy i can handle; pity, no.

ok, so i may feel lousy.  that's part of being human.  in time i'll feel better... so i fake it 'till i make it.

Your words are as if they were written by me. I thought I was so alone on this topic!

I know the feeling. I wear two face's. I have to pretend that everything is alright around everyone while i'm hurting on the inside. I deal with alot. I lost my fiance' to cancer in Nov,2009. It's still fresh & raw. I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, back & neck injuries, bipolar & major depresion. So I try to function around other people & trust me it's hard as heck. But I'm torn up inside. When I get home it's like a relief, but ai alway's end up breaking down. So cheer up kiddo. You'll be fine. try not to be sad my friend.
