Not All That Glitters Is Gold

Sometimes you may look at someone and say, that person is lucky, they have a good life but the fact is you never know what they are going through. I have sat and watched others wish to have another persons life, but then when they hear their story they are shocked!!

I have seen people sit and wish to be in my shoes but they didn't understand or know what it was like being in my shoes, they only saw what was on the outside but not what was happening on the inside or behind closed doors, Why would you want to wish to be a person who struggles with kidney disease with all the pain and agony that comes behind it all. A pretty face is just a pretty face why not be yourself instead of wanting to be like someone else.

You have this and that and your pretty sometimes I had to laugh inside not because I was laughing at them but because it hurt to see what they would be getting their selves into. For me I have to work hard at staying healthy eating right, having enough water taking supplements, doing a detox from time to time more often than i wish to do it and for all those who know what an enema is you know that's a painful process. Why be grudgeful of someone you hardly know anything about.  People always thought I had money when really I didn't it was always my mom and I because my dad passed years ago. There were more struggles than successes but we didn't complain we always put a smile on our faces and pretended all was ok we still do till this day because that's ho its suppose to be. Everyone does not need to know whats happening in your life.

People always thought I had a lot of clothes but really i hardly had any, I just simply knew how to put myself together to make it look like I did!! I remember one day I had invited home a church friend one Sabbath and when she saw my closet her first remark was, I thought you had  more clothes than this, I then turned to her and said I always told you I didn't but I do hope you believe me now.

I said all this to say loves that never wish to be in someone else's space or shoes because you don't know whats happening in their life or what they had to do to get where they are today and do your best not to be judgemental because there is always a reason behind every story. There is a reason why people act a certain way and at the same time never act like you are better than anyone else because you can end up being in another persons shoes or in a similar situation. Be humble and kind because it  will take you a far way.

I do hope you enjoyed the post loves!! What did you learn from this post?
