For all those women who know my messy life and still love and support me. They call me out when I need it and give me grace as well.
I see you, Mom. Yes, you. The one always posting how awesome your kids are or the amazing adventure you had yet again this week. The one posting yet another amazing craft or achievement your kids did. I see you. I see that your kids defied you all week. I see that your house is a wreck. I see that you are exhausted. I see that you allow way more time on the TV and tablets then you want to admit. I see you. I see through your posts and I still love and support you.
I see you, Wife. Always posting how amazing your husband is. How he is the kindest, most helpful, most understanding man in the World! I see your cute selfies of yet another fabulous date. I see you. I see that you had yet another argument concerning the family finances. I see that you are more like two ships in the night; trying to manage the kids, house, and jobs. I see you. I see right past your pretty posts and I still love and support you.
I see you, Friend. I see your likes of “my style” you say you love to wear. I see your posts of “vulnerability”, this is you being honest. I see your selfies that have your makeup and hair perfect. I see you. I see that you are too embarrassed by your true wardrobe and try to cover it up with Pins. I see that your vulnerable posts are more for the likes and craving the approval of others. I see you. I see right past the facade and I still love and support you.
Life online line is a myth, smoke ‘n mirrors, the life we want to portray. Know that I see your true self. That scares you. It scares you that I see your life without rose-colored glasses. It scares you that I truly know who you are. It scares you that I know your messy life. I still love and support you. I love you with your imperfections. I support you in your real life.
Your Real Life Friend
