No More Faking Fine – Ending the Pretending
By A Wise Woman Builds Her Home
I am still working my way through the recently released book, No More Faking Fine: Ending the Pretending. I am enjoying it so far and wanted to share some good quotes with you.
Here is one on pretending:
“How often have your tried not to cry your own tears? Maybe you’re like me, and you weren’t prepared for life to be shockingly painful at times. Or maybe you believe, as I did, that you have to fake fine because God wants strong, un-anxious Christians. I know I am not the only one who minimizes my pain, works hard to get out of it, or just pretends that everything is okay. But I have found that if we minimize our suffering to a 3 on the pain scale, then we only heal at a 3 as well.”
