On Being Real

Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.” 
― Margery WilliamsThe Velveteen Rabbit
Better to face reality then to pretend. This is not always pleasant, and I don't relish confrontation. I have realized over the years that anger is not productive but sometimes it is the only tool I have. The kitty can only take so many pokes and pulling of the tail before the lion has to roar and say enough. I have had enough.
Life is not easy; relationships are not easy.  Life is a miracle, too, and there are so many wonderful  and pleasing things to be thankful for.   I have come to recognize is that  as much pain as I have experienced, the heartbreak, the depression, the sadness also  carves out that much joy. Whether I can see it in the moment or not.  I am glad I am a real person.
