I want to share with you, that I AM HUMAN TOO.
I face fears of not being the perfect mom, the perfect wife, the right kind of friend. I face fears of my child dying or getting hurt. I face fears of being misunderstood or being rejected by people I love. I am human.
I let lies creep in saying, "you are not enough", "you're not doing that right for your baby", "you're not welcome here", "you must 'mom' this way --it's the only right way", "you cannot share that-- what would people think of you then". I am human.
I hide behind a "perfect" (fake) me. I'll share the little problems that won't hurt me. But-what is not perfectly real, is fake-
Remember... I am human.
I build a shell around me, trying to keep the negativity out.... but soon I will break.
I am human.
And instead of letting the shell burst on it's own, I will break out of it!
I am human. I get upset. I hurt others. I exhaust myself trying to make a "perfect" life. I get negative. I talk behind people's backs. I let myself become lazy. (and sorry, I'm losing it now😭).
I am human.
Bullying is real. Hurt is real. Negativity is real. Partiality is real.
You are human. I am human. Let's be kind.
Please stop bullying, stop shaming, stop hurting other humans.
