“But I do it so well!” She said to no one but herself. More precisely she was speaking to her image in the mirror, who she could always count on agreeing.
“I do!” She reiterated. “No one can tell how I truly feel. My demeanor is faultless. I appear to all as a confident positive person.”
The image in the mirror had nothing to add. It never did … except she was becoming increasingly aware of frown lines appearing in each corner of her image’s mouth, stretching her skin in an unflattering grimace.
She smiled a radiant smile. The one she had practiced for a long time. It had become an art form, she was so skillful at it. Frown lines disappeared.
Yes, she thought. This will do. No one will know how unhappy she really is. No one, that is … except herself.
“Happiness is found within ourselves. To pretend otherwise is to greatly lessen who we are, preventing us from being all that we might be.” ~Plh
May you have wonderful days to come and remember … take care of you.
With love and affection,

Inside and out, of course.
I posted a photo on Facebook a few days ago that a woman has as a tattoo. She shared it to highlight the hidden depression. The tattoo on her leg says “I’m Fine” but when you look at it from a different angle, it says “Save me”
It is a sadness. There is so much goodness and value inside each person, if they only knew their individual worth. It’s already there. Just waiting to be found.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a mirror that showed your worth.
Mmmm, gotta think on that one, Al. I truly believe there is worth in everyone, just like there is a propensity for both good and bad, albeit some do stand out more than others! 😕
Thanks Penny. I used to do this all of the time. Now, what you is is honest. 🙂
Hi Susan, good for you! Great to read (hear) this. ♡
