Hey bro! (You can’t fool your own heart)

I used to hide behind a fake smile. ⁣
For some reason, I created the belief that I had to pretend to be happy to protect the people that I loved. ⁣
Believing this lie caused me to suppress my true self….. And although the mask that I wore was appealing to others, there was part of me that was screaming to be let out. ⁣
To cope, I found ways to self-medicate my pain…⁣
… And this action caused much pain to those that I was trying to protect. ⁣

Today, I refuse to mask who I am and who I feel. ⁣

I have learned that the best way that I can contribute to the well being of those that I love (and to myself) is to be authentically “me.”⁣

Go out and be all that God created you to be!!!⁣
🙏🙌🔥⁣
