sometimes i feel like we're all just pretending.
pretending in relationships,
pretending in happiness,
pretending that everything is all okay.
i'm beginning to learn that things are almost never okay.
not matter how hard we pretend,
just turning up the music doesn't make things better.
but it's through the Savior Jesus Christ that we can bear it.
we can smile after we cry.
because He is hope.
because of His atonement.
because of what He did for us, for me.
so that in my darkest time, when i was shuttering with pain.
i could sense peace.
that i can pick myself back up and keep going.
it's because of Him.
i owe everything to Him.
