I know when I have not felt good, or I have felt low, or depressed, I have mostly done well to pretend that everything is ok. A habit I have done for many years because then, when I first used to pretend all was well, it was because I felt alone and I did not feel I had any friends close by.
When I started being around people who knew me, pretending all was well when it wasn’t, proved to be difficult at times, because they knew me well enough.
Although now I will still have a moment pretending all is well, when it isn’t, mostly I will say when I am not and what is wrong. This is because I am in a place where I feel I am not alone now and I feel I belong and wanted in this world.
Do you pretend you are fine, when you are not?
