So many times in my daily conversations I hear, "Hey, how you doing?" and the usual response is something like, "good" "great" or, if its a friend usually a weird accent and a dumb joke flies out of my mouth. Its become so second nature, that we usually say things like this despite what we are really feeling, because exposing that would in turn expose that we had flaws and weaknesses. I think there is so much power in honesty, even if it hurts sometimes. Until we express how we truly feel on the inside, outwardly, all of those feelings just bottle up, and consume you. I know because I have struggled with that for years, even to the point where I literally thought my body was going to combust. And I'm not saying just go and tell the whole world your problems, but find that one person you trust, and just be real. The freedom in the release of your vulnerability is one that no words can adequetly describe.
