You're telling it like it is, aren't you? The strongest emotions seem to need the fewest words, or words are simply inadequate for them.
I am a hypocrite because I tell everyone they'll be okay when I feel like I'm drowning.
Man, do I know that feeling. But in better moments I realize that I'm not a hypocrite. I'm telling myself the things I tell someone else because I, too, need to hear them, over and over. I need to counteract the messages (from the All Lies... post
, from your lines "Because..." above, and so on) that came from the sick minds that abused me.
Thanks for sharing this. It says a lot of things that I didn't quite realize I needed to say.
