Random Question #10

We all have something we keep hidden, downplay, try to overlook, whether it's physical or emotional. A method of life, a secret, a hurt.
`
For me, it's a scarred ear.
`
`
What do you hide?

A huge family drama that has been going on for years and certain members not speaking to each other for those long years. Very sad.

Um, my tetracycline-stained teeth.
At least I DID do it for a long time but ONE TIME someone said, "You have a nice smile," and I quit worrying about them.

Isn't that both joyous and sad, that it took ONE COMMENT to change me?
Why hadn't I listened to God's assurances?

BTW, have an author guest today--my FIRST! Would love you to stop by and say hi if you have time.

I used to hide my past. Not anymore :) Writing a memoir will get you waaaay over that fear :)

Honestly, I slouch to hide why my friends called me Dolly Parton in h.s.

You knew I'd represent on this one. ;)

I hide my insecurity well. Many think I am a together kind of person, but in reality, I question everything I do and am.

Great post!

Some days I think I got married too young. I try to hide that feeling from my husband.

My natural tendency to spend hours alone. I force myself to be social--most people have no idea I could be by myself for 48 hours and be entirely happy!

Jessica Nelson said...

If I tell you it wouldn't be hidden. :-) I will admit to nairing my upper lip. *grin*

Love that picture!! Adorable! I also like the way it looks with the teal background. :D

I think I've reached an age now when hiding stuff takes too much effort. It all hangs out now. ;)

ConnieGirl said...

Well, if I tell you, I wouldn't be very good at hiding it, would I?

:)

Deb Shucka said...

Perhaps how much I need/adore attention. :-)

cosmoscami said...

How much I crave human touch.

Melissa Marsh said...

Crying. When I cry, I have a pathological obsession to hide it in public. I have cried at work before and it was humiliating for me.

Jill said...

We're estranged from my family. I typically gloss over any questions about relatives and turn the conversation towards the one I'm speaking with.

Hi Janna -

Although I try very hard, patience is not my strong point. Not enough sleep and time in the Word - it's not pretty.

Blessings,
Susan

Terri Tiffany said...

Can I say all of the above? Mostly that I am afraid of stupid things and that makes me so insecure.

Elana Johnson said...

Oooh, interesting. I think we hide a lot of things on different levels. For me, I try to hide how OCD I am about certain things. Not a clean house, unfortunately.

Amy Tate said...

Not hiding stuff is my problem. I'm an open book and I think that's how I deal with stuff. Whatever I'm going through always comes out in my writing - good or bad. Yikes!

Janet Johnson said...

For a long time, I didn't tell anyone that I write. In fact, I've only started to in the last year or so. Slowly getting over my fears.

Jeanette Levellie said...

Too many things to count, but one of my biggies is impatience. Everyone thinks I'm so gentle and sweet, when I may be gritting my teeth through that smile.

I love that God loves me anyway. And so do my buddies.

Sharla said...

all my insecurities. I act like I don't have any, but I'm so jacked up with them it warps me sometimes.

Karen said...

Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be hidden....snicker.....

My feelings

Back hair. Sorry, but you asked.

My fear. Thought-provoking question
