R is for Real

R is for Real
So many people like to look like they have it all together. I know I am one of them. But the universal truth is we don’t, none of us do. And the sooner we are honest with ourselves and others the sooner we can have real relationships.
How many times have you asked yourself, while talking with someone: If you really knew me, knew what I was thinking and everything I have done, you wouldn’t like me at all? If you only really knew me.
It is hard to be real. It makes us vulnerable.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t spew out my realness to just anyone. I’ve made that mistake before. Some people aren’t real worthy.
But when you find it, you’ll know. Someone you can be real with.
And then I hope you can say: See, they know me, and they’re still here.
