Being Real

August 16, 2016


I've been excited to see a lot more women embracing authenticity lately. It feels like a movement - like the world is finally growing weary of putting on a show of comparisons - of ridicule. A lot of these things will never die off in their entirety, but as for me? I'm ready to start living bravely- to be open about my convictions, downfalls and triumphs alike. There is such a raw beauty in being open with one another - not getting caught in a misguided expectation for physical perfection, and being willing to admit to our faults. We are all constantly comparing ourselves - if only I could be as pretty, as organized, as godly as her. No. Just no. Because behind every seemingly "perfect" woman is an ordinary girl dealing with her own struggles. Even from a biblical perspective - the Bible doesn't sugar coat. Everything is plain, simple and forthright. Why should we be any different?

The reality of it all is that the world has gone generation after generation playing the perfection card, the, "I have a happy life" card. Social media has done us all a huge favor, making this problem a thousand times harder.

We are all humans.

It's time to end comparisons. Challenge yourself because God pushes you to, not because of jealousy or envy. We all have a lot of differences, but in a lot of ways we are all so the same. We are a lost animal, and we need guidance from a Savior.

Dare to be bold. Dare to be brave. We're all in this.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
