It’s ok to be fake.
It’s ok to put on a smiling face.
It’s ok not to be totally honest.
At least sometimes.
Because sometimes the grocery store or a party or the awkward greeting time at church is not the best time to answer the “how are you?” question honestly.
And sometimes we need to know that someone is safe before we start showing our wounds.
And sometimes we need to forget our pain or our troubles or our sorrow for an evening and just be ok.
This is a form of self-care.
The important thing is that we are ourselves in those places where it is safe to be ourselves.
In those places, be real. Be raw. Be true.
