Let’s be honest, when you hear the word “Falsies”, you think about boobs or eyelashes.
Am I right?
Of course I am, but falsies should really encompass anything that is faked in order to make ourselves feel more beautiful, confident or strong.

The falsies that I tend to wear are confidence, humor, sarcasm and happiness.
See this picture?
The comments on this photo are all positive.
“You look awesome!”
“Love your confidence!”
This is a unicorn photo.
Its a photo, where I decided to act silly or goofy, in order to hide the fact that I was amazingly uncomfortable. These photos are rarely glimpsed by anyone other than me and believe me, if they show up on the internet, they have been scrutinized over by my biggest critic, me!
See this picture?
This is a great picture of my falsies and it is my go-to falsie pose.
People laugh and say, “Oh your cup is so funny!” or “I feel you!”.
What people don’t realize is that my anxiety is at an all-time high, I have or am about to snap on my children, I may be on the verge of crying. The mug, in this picture and all the others, is my biggest falsie. It hides the features that I hate the most. My triple chins, my missing teeth, my mustache and my awkwardly faked smile.
I’ll be ok.
Falsies, they are not just boobs and eyelashes.
My falsies are so big that I put drag queens to shame!
I am not strong.
I am not brave.
I do not like myself.
I am not the best mom.
I am not the best person.
I am not happy everyday.
I am my own worst enemy. Believe me, no one hates me, as much as I hate myself. It’s not an easy road to travel on, especially when you are stuck in a pothole of self-loathing. Trust me, I know. I’m here and I’ve been spinning my wheels in this rut for over 20 years.
Fake it until you make it.
Wear the support of those that love you.
Don’t let your falsies take over.
Like right now.
My falsies are fading and falling off, so I better figure out where to get a new pair.
