I see women dive right into judging me before they even get to know me. We are really hard on each other ya know. I say I am cold and their phrase, "It's because you are so skinny." I don't think that was a compliment. How do respond to that comment? I usually just grin and change the subject after feeling uncomfortable. These are sisters in Christ too.
I don't have it all together. Maybe you know this, but maybe you don't. I can't say I know what you see when you look at me whether in person or in photos. And I don't know how I come across to you in words, actions...I bet most of the time I haven't a clue.
Sure, I have some things together as a wife, a mom, a friend, a sister, etc. but, maybe I would shock you if ya knew what I didn't, BUT that requires getting to know me.
Plunging headlong into taking a risk that who I let you see on the outside has insecurities on the inside (like should I be wearing a bikini in my post-babies body)?
Yes, I still get an occasional zit on my face.
I have wrinkles (Hey, I am 38).
I have cellulite even though I am thin.
I yell at my kids and hubby (not that I like it).
I trip over words.
I DON'T think I am a great writer!
I listen to lies in my head too and sometimes I believe someone else has it all together, but that is a lie as well.
