I agreed with this article in so many ways, and I am American.
One of the main points mentioned in this article (written by and Irish man who lived in the US for a year) was how fake we tend to be. I couldn’t agree more. Why do we always have to be so happy and always perfect all of the time. Note, the social media posts of people that really are unhappy. You know that those adorable kids that do nothing wrong can be total bratty little shites at times. They all can be. And what about the perfectly made up always coiffed divas?? They poop like the rest of us, and if they don’t then they have some other major problems that need to be dealt with.
That fake, everything is perfect, movie quality life is crap for the most part. Now I will admit to leading a pretty amazing life. But, it took some time and some deep soul searching on my part.
Do I have some things in my past – YES! Did I grow up with a bit of heartache? YES! Have I worked hard to be the truer person of me – YES. Do I believe you can too? YES!
Do I think being continually negative is the best way to live your life – NO.
Find a happy medium. Acknowledge those days where you’re a bit down, share in the good and the not so good. Be honest with yourself (this is the most important)
Say what you mean, mean what you say, be nice when you say it.
“I speak my personal truth.”
“I am honest with myself.”
“I attract honesty in my life.”
