A Good Liar

She was a good liar. Any queries about her day and her health were met with a smile and forced warmth. She never said no even on the worst days because she wanted to be there for everyone. But she wasn’t okay. One of them told her to ‘cheer up’. Another asked her to take better care of herself. Self care was important, the Internet told her. It was also something that she had never thought about. “Is it like being selfish in a good way?” She asked her therapist. Who told her it was more about being kind to yourself. That sounded simple enough.

  1. Once when I was hurting because of someone’s attitude, my doctor told me I didn’t really care for that person. According to him, I was more concerned about myself!!!
