The Backside

Often we hide the mess of our lives and only show the good side. Social media filters make everything look beautiful, almost too beautiful. Life isn’t always beautiful. Sometimes it’s really messy, and disappointing, and hard. But we get through it and make the most of whatever we are dealing with.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could set aside our ego and share some of the messiness? Understanding that something we share may help someone else realize they are not alone.

I celebrate your good side, the side you are happy to share and I accept your messy side, the side you keep to yourself. It’s okay, I understand, I have difficulties and disappointments too.

In the future I will find the courage to be more vulnerable and show some of the backside of my life, the messy side, the things I face and overcome to make the front side more presentable.
