Thinly Veiled

 “Happier than I’ve been for a long time”. Yes, according to FB, maybe. And that’s true. I am happy with my job, in my church, and in my social life. Things are looking up, and I am smiling a lot more these days.

Until someone mentions self-harm. Or depression. Or engagement or marriage. Then I stop smiling and fade out of the conversation. Fight tears. Or break down into uncontrollable sobs.

I thought I was dealing with things OK. But no. Work is just a thin veil, covering a multitude of pain. And no matter how often I put it off, i’ll have to confront it sometime. Help me, God..?
