It’s Time to Dig In and Dig Out

I’ve deleted and retyped portions of this post over and over. It still feels scary, but I’m publishing anyway. This is not a cry for ego stroking or a pity party. This is real, and I hope you can be real too.

I’m really good at going through my day, my week, my life happy. I’m great at being real enough that I don’t portray perfection, but not so real that we actually discuss the messy stuff.


The problem is that on some level, I’m pretending. I’m pretending everything is fine. I’m pretending I don’t get jealous and envy what others have. I’m pretending that my anger doesn’t claw its way out of me on a regular basis. I’m pretending I don’t pretend.
