Introspection — what better way to start a week.

Question: Do you have the courage to live your story or do you live in an altered version of the truth?

Toby Keith sings, “I wish, I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then. I wish, I could start this whole thing over again.”

To be honest, I sometimes long for the day that I go back and choose to not discover my whole story. I sometimes hate knowing all the detail of my riddled childhood and the detail of my children’s trauma. The ugliness that surrounded us is almost unbearable to see.

Let’s be honest — it is far easier to pretend. For the moment, that is. Not for the years.

The cost of pretending is so detrimental. I know. I lived pretending for the first half of my life. I can’t afford that price tag any longer. I’ll live with my realities. It’s far easier in the end.

Do you pretend?
