This is a song by Matthew West. I chose to share it. Because there is truth to it.

Lie number one you’re supposed to have it all together. And when they ask how you’re doing just smile and tell them, Never Better.

Lie number two everybody’s life is perfect except yours. So keep your messes and your wounds and your secrets safe with you behind closed doors.

Truth be told. The truth is rarely told.

I sat I’m fine, yeah I’m fine oh I’m fine hey I’m fine but I’m not and you know it. I’m broke and when it’s out of control I say it’s under control but it’s not and you know it.

I don’t know it’s so hard to admit it. When being honest is the only way to fix it. There’s no failure in fall. There is no sin you don’t already know. So the truth be told.

Can I really stand here unashamed. Knowing that you love for me won’t change? Oh God if that’s really true. Then let the truth be told.

We are told to our problems and feelings to ourselves. Keep it under wrap and key. But I know from experience that is not true. I hide everything inside for to many years. It’s wasn’t until I started talking about my past traumas and feelings that I began to heal.

So, stop trying to hold it all in, it only slowly kills you inside. Let it all out, that’s the only way you’ll be peaceful, happy, energized and truly let the truth be told.
