Doesn’t everyone hide things about themselves?

I logged into Word Press to add some links to my page and long behold I have a very nice comment left for me from KuntryGurl. I usually read the BLOG of the person who leaves a comment to try to see if I can know them more by what they keep on their page. While visiting KuntryGurl’s page I read the post they kept there titled, “100 things about me” and thought what a great idea. I was impressed with the courage of some of the things they put down about themselves. I have found throughout my life, with people I have met, that often they have lied about themselves. Maybe lie is not the right word. Certainly they have hidden a lot about themselves. Maybe it is because they are plagued with the worries of “first impressions” counting most and they are not good enough that they feel the need to hide MOST of their personality until much later. I am not like that. I am NOT perfect! I am NOT always nice. I am not a lot of things and don’t hide anything from ANYONE. It works for me. I just wish it would work for more people to be open like that. I mean come on, think about it, wouldn’t it prevent a lot of bad situations from happening if people were more real from the very beginning?

Reading KuntryGurl’s BLOG has inspired this entry and has inspired me to do something similar to what they have done with the list about themselves. Maybe more people will prepare a list about themselves here at Word Press since it is as anonymous as you like it to be. The Internet allows people to feel more secure with being themselves. I think that anyway.

I want to unload myself here before I work on the list about myself. The list might not be done in one night but I will surely start it tonight after this post. (By the way today has been good for me all day! Dinner was great and I was so happy being able to make it with little problems of fatigue, pain, etc. Now onto my post.) Time to unload myself…

Imagine if the politician was honest about what they really stood for? I know that is hard to do but try. I will not use any particular politician because I don’t want to start a debate here and now with this post. We all know they lie, or hide things about themselves and the policies they support. So with that let me get this out…

If we knew without a doubt that they did in fact support wars or we’ll say global rule that the people would be much better educated about knowing whether to support them. Instead they’ll hide that policy stance perhaps and then people will support them but would not if they had known they were into starting wars or wanted to stand up for global rule. You could use this with any issue. The bottom line is if they were completely honest the public could vote more wisely and send money to support a candidate more wisely. We would have a true candidate every time.

Somewhere along the line we have been conditioned to ACCEPT they are not totally honest on issues. Why is that? Why not hold each accountable for any deception they hand out? If one says they are for something but vote against it or do the complete opposite then what they said with the first impression why not hold them accountable for that deception? Why accept “they all lie”?

I guess I didn’t get something that others did growing up. Something didn’t sink in with me where this topic is concerned. My dad must have told me to many times that lies of any kind are very bad and that you should always be you no matter what anyone will think of the real you.

I know through my life I have not gotten jobs because I was the REAL me. I know through my life people have disliked me because I was the REAL me. I know being the honest real me has perhaps closed doors for me throughout life. I accept that as a part of life.

However I believe I am where I am supposed to be. I know that being the true me that it also opened doors for me that otherwise would not have budged.

What makes people hide the true aspects of whom they are? How about you, do you hide true aspects of who you are at anytime? If so, why do you do that? What is it you hide about yourself? You can be honest here it is anonymous.

Today is a good day!

It seems today will be a good day for me. I am so happy about that! I woke up this morning very tired still so after I got my daughter her breakfast I laid down on the couch. I didn’t fall asleep until my husband and her had left to run a few errands. I slept while they were gone on the couch. That was about thirty minutes. When they returned home I woke up. When I woke up I felt a little better than I did when I first got out of bed. That is a good thing! That doesn’t happen often anymore for me.

Now my hand pain was pretty bad when I first woke up but it has eased some now. Terrible that I still have pain but say it is a good thing! (Chuckles) I shouldn’t have pain at all but hey this is ME we’re discussing here. I live with pain so when it isn’t the worst it could be then I am good!

I guess I am that way because I have had pain that has brought me to my knees and nothing I done helped ease it. I have had pain that makes you unable to think rationally too. So minor pain isn’t shit for me.

Since today seems that it is going to be a good day I want to make a good dinner. Ribs, kraut and potatoes! YES! I will keep my fingers crossed that my energy level stays up where it is and that I don’t get hit with a sudden feeling of malaise or fatigue. Cross your fingers for me too please. 🙂

My appetite seems to be better today compared to yesterday too. I have already had breakfast, and a turkey sandwich on rye with chips as a snack. I feel like something else already too. This is good.

Yesterday my appetite sucked big time! I had breakfast but had to force myself to eat it. I only had a small bowl of soup for lunch. I had half of a pork chop and corn for dinner. Wow, now that I look at that in text I realize it isn’t much at all for a pregnant woman. Sounds like more when you just verbalize it. OK today seems that it will be much better for the appetite, that makes me happy.

Going to waste some time in political chat now while I feel spunky. I’ll journal more this evening perhaps.
