Revealing my true self

Talked to my therapist today. She made me realize the importance of showing my vulnerabilities and not end up like my father. When i was younger, i was an enigma. No one really knew who i was other than religion, hobbies, and a fake smile. I didn’t show my weaknesses to anyone, not even family. The more i thought about it, the more i realized i was afraid of being like my father. I didn’t want to distance myself emotionally from a woman longing for intimacy with me. I also didn’t want to end up distrusting everyone. After so many years, i’m beginning to show who i truly am beneath.

  1. It sounds like you’re beginning a very brave journey to know yourself better and be better known. It’s worthwhile. I wish you every success. I had a father I didn’t want to be like, either. I even exaggerate my make-up so my face won’t resemble his. I have forgiven him, but don’t want to be like him. You are your own person. Don’t be afraid to be you. You’re a wonderful creation of God our Heavenly Father, who is so much closer to you than your earthly dad ever could be. May God bless you in your journey, every step of the way, to an end overflowing with freedom and happiness.
