I know, it's a pretty gruesome picture. But it's probably more realistic than anything else.
Life isn't what we think it should be.
It's not a fairytale.
No one has a perfect life.
Everyone goes through hard times.
The problem arises when we look at others and think they've got it better than we do. Let me let you in on a little secret....
That person you look at and wish you were more like? They don't have it all together.
No one does.
We are all muddling through this journey called life.
Everyone has insecurities.
Everyone looks in the mirror and sighs.
Everyone has secrets they don't dare tell anyone.
Everyone is afraid of something.
I have a few very close friends that I share my heart with and they do the same with me. The thing is though, if you were to look at our Facebook pages you would think the three of us have lives to be envied. But you don't know the stories behind the pictures. When I look at these ladies I see what you see, but I also know the ugly parts of life that is kept hidden.
And we all have stories behind the pictures.
Many times what you see in the picture is the result of years of hard work. You don't see the hard work. You don't see the bruises or cuts. The blisters. You don't see the bills, the accidents.
Real life happens to all of us.
No one is immune to it.
Don't fall into the trap of believing you're not good enough.
