Sometimes I wonder what it really means to be authentically me.
I do my best to portray my true self to others.
And then sometimes I think I am only showing them the parts of me that I think they want to see.
I'm not sure I'm living my truth because I think if I were my life would seem more in balance.
I wouldn't be questioning my choices so often.
I dig deep to find the answers to my questions.
I seek validation and I never get it.
Maybe I'm seeking validation from the wrong source.
I should not seek validation from anyone accept myself.
I think maybe I am more afraid of seeing myself for who I really am
than I am of letting others see who I am.
I'm a work in progress striving to reach my full potential.
I am searching for love that doesn't exist accept within myself.
I'm a little sad today.
Even though I look back with negative feelings,
I replace those with forgiveness.
And I look ahead with optimism, hope, faith and happy dreams
because the part of me that is authentic is the me that still believes in fairy tales.
