I love knowing the meanings of a word. The definition of Real according to Dictionary.com is “a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed; not imitation or artificial; genuine.” Enough said. Real is something hard to find in 2011. People are so used to lying to themselves that they start believing the lies that they say.
I love when I meet real people and they speak realness in my life. Most of the time, we don’t like to hear real things about ourselves. Truth is… Realness hurts. It cuts. It burns. It strings. It leaves a lasting effect on you. I recently had a friend tell me some things that I asked for but didn’t really want to hear. To be real with someone, you have to put yourself out there, leaving you to be hurt. I have learned that being real opens up trust, but you can’t go from being real one day to being artificial the next. It doesn’t work like that.
Have you been real today?
