The Real Me

We all have this mask we wear, the one for the public, Facebook, Twitter and so on. I have tried this last year to let that fall away and be more open and honest with who I really am and because of that I have lost some friends and gained others.

What does it mean to be real? Well... something like this.

Dream and take time for yourself, life is short.

Forget most of what people tell you and go with your gut.

Friends will never leave you but will always tell you the truth even if it hurts.

Money will never make you happy.

If you never try anything you will never fail or succeed.

You are not your job.

Sometimes the right thing is the wrong thing.

We are all not as cool as we think we are.

Being a nerd is not all that bad.

I like coffee, and books, and sometimes I need to be left alone.

Going out on the town every weekend gets boring.

Even the people you trust will let you down, cut them some slack.

Trust first and doubt later.

Most stories have three sides, your side, my side and the truth.

Sometimes I hate myself.

I do things I don't want to do because it is right and do things I don't want to do because I can't help myself.

My worst enemy is me.

Forgive me for being a jerk, I don't mean it but am stupid... a lot!

I am happy even when I am sad.

One day I hope to be a good writer, but in the meantime join me in my journey.

Never regret.

Learn something from everyone you meet, even if it is what not do do.

Most people that fail in life are scared.

Sometimes just getting out of bed is enough.

It is never as bad as you imagine it will be.

Cut yourself some slack.

I wish I was a better man.

People will hate you if you fail and hate you if you succeed.

And last of all... You Are Enough!

  1. "People will hate you if you fail and hate you if you succeed." <--- This is true dear!!

    But people will also admire your success, not your failure... ;)

  2. Love you babe... It's been quite a year of learning.

  3. Sometimes it seems like the decisions in life get more difficult as time goes on. This is certainly true with kids and relationships and on occasion in the business side of our art. But it's facing them and dealing with them that matters, and in the end, if it's a rough fight, we're stronger for doing the right things...But it ain't never easy...

  4. Much wisdom in this post there is. *read using Yoda voice*

    From one nerd to another; I really liked this post.

  5. Much respect. Well said.
