A truthful lie


I get into these funks
and I know that it’s normal
to go through these moments
but why on earth do they have to come
when I’m in the midst of peace

It’s because a woman’s entire self-worth rests on her looks. That’s why. It’s because we live in a beauty-obsessed society where the most important thing a woman can do is make herself attractive to men.
– Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies

A truthful lie



I got out of bed today.
That’s what I tell myself on my best days and my hardest days.
That’s one of the ways I know how to love myself.
It’s a simple struggle.
The irony.
But every way the day unfolds is a bonus.
So if whatever you’re going through makes the day seem unbearable
just focus on getting out of bed.
You might surprise yourself on what you’ll accomplish after that.
