Why having Two-Faces or more is a PLUS

“Let me know
Do I still got time to grow?
Things ain’t always set in stone
That be known let me know
Let me…”- Kanye West, Street Lights

It’s not my job, nor anyone else’s job to state who someone is as a personal individual.

We don’t spend vast numbers of intimate and vulnerable moments with the people we encounter or interact with in person, or via social media.

You see some of you THINK you know the people you are around and you don’t. Large part of it due to the fact that we don’t know how to spend TIME with each other anymore.

We have a miraculous way of building up images and persona(s) to show people because we are afraid of showing who we really are, wondering if people will accept it or make fun of its differences…we don’t know. So we don’t display it–our true selves.

But can you blame us?

We need to stop calling people one thing because we’ve experienced one side of them. To personally put myself on the chopping block, I am a completely DIFFERENT person outside of work and “professional” environments. But YOU will never know that, nor do I desire to show EVERYONE I meet that side of me. It’s not necessary.

Because I believe who you are inside is inmate and should be cherished.

My gift, talent, skills etc., are given and built to display, share. The same for yours and others. What you do personally has NOTHING to do with me except the person you kiss, sleep, and hug every night. The people who share INTIMATE spaces with you. The ones who know the questionable things you’ve done, what makes you cry at the drop of a hat and things that deathly scare you.BestFriend1

So, as you are entitled to your opinion, have that.

But, don’t go calling a spade a spade when you haven’t been in multiple REAL life situations with people. What you do everyday…go to school, work, campaign, go clubbing, have lunch, girl talk, football games, date for a year on and off etc., are play-play life moments. To me anyways.

When some REAL ish happens I promise you either two things will happen. Either someone BRAND new is going to debut or someone you know will spring into action.

That ladies and gentlemen are the things SARAH LEE watches, values, and practices in her life. Also, it’s why I find it unnecessary to show everyone, me. Except the people who deserve it and matter. Because it’s not a nice feeling when people don’t understand you and hold it against you or misinterpret the things you do and say.

Don’t clutch that opinion too tight. It’s gone f you up. But time has a crazy way of showing what is what.

I thought, what better way to track my level of growth than by sharing my experiences and the lessons learned thereof, than in my blog?
