Truth Be Told

Truth be told I spend a lot of time feeling really insecure, so I don’t like to do things I don’t already know I’m good at, especially if you’re watching me.  I don’t like to admit that because I’m even insecure about how you’ll take it.

I like to be happy but sometimes I’m just not and, truth be told, I don’t always have a good excuse.

Letting people in has always been a tough one for me and I like to think I’m working on it.  Truth be told though, I’m really not.  I like the safety that comes from keeping you out.

I tend to know exactly how I feel about everything, but I don’t always say what I’m thinking.  (Even if you ask me because, truth be told, I’m afraid of being wrong or looking stupid.)

I just don’t know that I’m up for the fight against the Enemy that I feel like I’m always in and, truth be told, I’m exhausted from the questioning that seems to come from me when I try…

  1. Wow Stephanie!! Thank you for your honesty!!! When I started reading this I saw that this is exactly how I feel! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who feels this way!!

  2. Oh, Hannah! You’re DEFINITELY not alone; I’ve heard from so many since this post. The Enemy is definitely after us. I have found that posting scripture all over the place helps! Praying for you, girlie!
