{September 10, 2010}   Not All Colors Are Beautiful

I recently lost a handful of friends (may they die in a fire) when they removed their masks and showed their true faces. It was hard, and heartbreaking, to see deceptive users where I once saw friends. I know now that I am better off without their toxicity polluting my life.

Events like this make you take a long, hard look at the people in your life to try and determine who is genuine who is false. Sometimes your gut tells you right away, but some people wear masks better than others. With these people only time will show their true colors. Somehow, I don’t think that’s what Cyndi Lauper was referring to in her song…

Ultimately, I’m lucky. I have a decent sized list of genuine people in my life and a gut that knows better…if I would only listen to it once in a while.
