Do you know anyone who seems just "so comfortable" in social situations? Someone who has no problem talking in front of crowds? Someone who seems to be very self confident and happy? That's me. But it's not real. I am the queen faker! I can put on a great face in public, but inside, I feel like I'm dying. Most of the time, I am sad, I have bad feelings about myself, and I'm tired.
My husband says that I don't need to project a happy image if I don't feel like it. This isn't true. People come to expect certain things from you, and would be disappointed if you acted another way.
I suppose everyone is a faker to a certain extent. But I'd sure like to be the person I pretend to be!!
