I got so Tired of Pretending.


I got so tired of pretending.

Pretending to be the person I perceived you wanted me to be.

I pretended so much, I lost sight of who I was.

His Grace led me to understand that I AM OK. I AM who I’m supposed to be. And guess what? So are you! You are exactly where you’re supposed to be at this moment. Want to change something? Do it! You’ll be so happy when you get back to you! Bless you.

  1. Writing is going to be two great things for you, a catharsis and an awakening. You have begun your writing journey.
    I hope it is also going to be a catalyst to help others to begin their journey to becoming free from their past so they can embrace life, or maybe to better understand the suffering some people have gone through in life.
    Life is so imperfect and sometimes cruel. Thank God it isn’t something that must be borne alone.
    The kitten in the jeans leg is purrfect! It, like you, is peeking out wondering if it’s safe. It is! And, it’s so adorable, how could it not be loved.

  2. Thank You! By Divine Providence, you have become my friend of the ♥️. Your supportive, loving comments have helped me realize just how important it is for me to continue writing. It is, indeed, a Catharsis.
    Several years ago, after completing about 10 chapters, I tried to back it up to an external hard drive. Instead, I “backed up” the blank hard drive to my computer, effectively erasing over two years of pouring out my heart.
    Devastated, I just stopped.
    Your recent “kick in the butt” was exactly what I needed! I have been lead to sharing my experiences so that others can Know and Believe that, no matter the hardships we face, we Can not only Survive, but Triumph! We need only to place ourselves in God’s loving hands.

      1. Hello, Susan. It’s great to hear from you! I tried twice to reply on WordPress, but I believe my comments got lost. I just want you to know how proud I am of you, and I’m also very happy for you. I’m not sure if gr8fulnurse.com is your email address or WordPress address. I still don’t quite do WordPress well. I guess it would help if I used it more often. To be honest, I don’t do electronics well 😜. I hope hubby and kitties are doing well. Please, never let anyone tell you differently because your writing talent is truly a gift. Keep writing. You never know who’s life may be impacted in a positive way. ❤️

  3. Hello, Susan.

    This is wonderful news all around. I hope hubby and kitties are doing well. Is gr8fulnurse.com on WordPress or in the ether? Is it also your email address?

    You’ve made the huge strides needed to reclaim your life rather than spending precious time in the virtual world. I think you’ll be happy you did. I know I am much more productive and content not speaking into the echo chambers intentionally created by Jack and Mark. They sectioned conservatives off so they wouldn’t make any headway where it’s most needed in the leftist world.

    I expect you’ll find your time will be something you can use in ways that may actually have an impact and help others. I’m very happy for you. I’m also very proud of you for making this decision to write. You have a gift. You never know how many lives you might touch in a positive way; and goodness knows, the world needs as much of things positive as can be accomplished
