Lies #SoulfulSunday

“I am enough”, the lies I tell myself! 

Sometimes it makes me happy and able. 

So I keep up with the charade and chant,“I am enough”. 

Often though, the lies stare at me and it hurts like hell.

I am trying my best. Another lie. Maybe, not my best, but I’m trying to be enough. 

One of these days I will catch up with the lies I say to myself, I promise.  Or is it yet another lie?

Written for #SoulfulSunday, an exercise to nourish our creative side, formulated by Esha and supported by Shilpa and yours truly.

  1. Hugs, Vinitha! Some days are like that and it’s okay too. I find that those are the days when you shouldn’t probe too deep down…take your mind off things. Just let go and be. Embrace the uncertainties and the not-so-good feelings that flow through you. Fortunately, for all of us, such thoughts don’t last long.
    I hope I’m making sense here!!
    Chin up. Vinitha and smile. 🙂

  3. I hear you, Vini! Yes, there are some days when we have to lie to ourselves. But, it’s okay to lie if it helps us survive the day.
    I won’t give you any advice on how to deal with these days because frankly I don’t deal very well with such days, myself. 🙁 But we have to carry on living, and so we have to carry on lying to ourselves that we are enough.

  4. P.S.
    I really loved how brilliantly you have expressed your innermost feelings through so little words, Vini.
    (I wanted to add this to my comment earlier, but clicked Post Comment before doing it ).

  5. Oh yes, I can relate to it. Sometimes the mirror seems to turn back and call you a liar. But lie we must to carry on and to infuse positivity into days that are sometimes unbearable otherwise. Very well written!
