TRYING

If you want to know someone, don't ask them what truths they know.
Ask them what lies they need.
We are all much more sensitive, and weaker creatures; then we will ever admit to.
We are all far more scared then we are willing to let on.
We are all far less independent then we would like to be.
Most of us claim that we don't let others negative opinions affect us.
Most of us say we would do the right thing, if no one was looking.
Maybe we would, but many of us wouldn't.
We are never completely who we wish we could be.
We always think we could always stand to be better looking, or smarter.
Kinder, funnier, somehow better.
We all use lies, in different ways, to make ourselves feel better about ourselves.
And yet all of us claim to love truth.
It is tough to look in the mirror and not see who we wish we could be, so we use lies to make ourselves look better.
We are just scared.
We're just imperfect.
We're just human.
We're just taking a little while longer then we'd like to become who we want to be.
There are times in your life when you will build who you are off of a lie, because you can't stand to face the truth.
Oftentimes, this is because we are not yet ready to face this truth.
Its always easier to believe in the myth of pure evil.
Its much harder to learn to understand, to be brave in the face of fear.
To try.
To love.
That's what makes trying so important.
