How often have you been guilty of pretending that everything is okay around others?
At one time or another most of us have put on a "Front" in where we pretend that everything is perfectly fine, but behind the front we are really struggling to deal with the personal "Stuff" that is causing upheaval in our life.
Don't be afraid to share the "Stuff" that is bothering you with close friend or family, often times we need to discuss our issues to be able to move past them.
Hiding behind that "Front" of I'm doing okay really allows for the "Stuff" to keep bothering you and prevents you from moving on and growing.
Be yourself, people will listen if you trust the process and you can move on and heal.
