It is the lie that I think most girls and women use in their lives.
My version of it is "It's fine." That lie you say when you just want it to go away. When you don't want to face your problems...your demons. You don't want to tell the person asking you that really you are breaking inside or just broken.
I've had one of those moments in my life where I was one version of myself one second. Then literally in a blink of an eye, I was another version. I am not sure if anyone can say one version was better than the other. I know it can be say one was more naive than the other.
During that time in my life I spent a lot of time telling the world that I was fine. When I wasnt. When I was contemplating suicide. When I was not only hiding behind the mask of "I'm Fine" but behind an eating disorder.
I do not know that many people have those moments in their life. Or if they do, they do not know they are having one. I literally got up off the floor, brushed my pants off, say myself for what I was, said eff this, and never looked back.
I am 30 years old. I still hide behind the mask of "I'm Fine." Sometimes that is just easier. Sometimes that is the strongest version of me.
What masks do you hide behind?
We all have them!
