I get so tired
of having to pretend
that I'm intelligent
and capable
and confident

I just wish they'd let me go
let me go somewhere

where I could rest
and be scared
and stupid
and real

There's an important message in there. Many of the feelings we have may be false and misleading, but they are real nonetheless. When we feel we have to deny them, that makes us think that recovery is about pretending.

It isn't! It's so important to acknowledge and own our feelings, whatever they may be. Admitting where we are and how we feel - being real, you might say - gives us the solid foundation upon which we can build.

Thanks for sharing this.

Much love,
