Quick Thought on “Appearances”

Silly Wil

Appearances…why do we hide behind them so worried about what others might think and say? I have struggled with this and have come to the conclusion that it is very selfish to hide behind appearances. We all have something valuable to share, and it is selfish to withhold that from the world for fear of someone not liking it. Sure, showing up for life may expose our flaws, but you never know whose life might be lifted by sharing your story. Each time we open up, the resilience earned and compassion learned overshadow appearances any day.

    Well said. I shied away from one of those experiences myself recently and I regret it. Good reminder for next time. :)
