I am a great pretender and my car troubles

We had problems with our car, and of course, I had to show my wife that I know something about fixing a car.

I went and opened the hood. I looked inside and I pretended I know what I was doing.

In reality, I didn’t have any clue!

(My brother and father are good with cars, but they were not around).

I touched some cables and hoped that some miracle will happen.

Nothing!

Finally, I told my wife that we have issues with electronics, but I don’t have the tools to fix it so it will be better if we call a mechanic.

OK, I lied a little…I didn’t have any clue what was going on!

I think my wife knows the truth.

A lesson my child taught me

Yesterday, my oldest son was wearing two different colors of socks. First, I mentioned about it, but then he stopped me with one question.

“I don’t care, does it matter?”

Honestly, I couldn’t really answer him, so I just told him that he is right. You decide what you should wear.

Why should we let the outside world define what we are, and what we are wearing?

Why can’t we be free from what others might think about us?

A true person should be free from others’ opinions and judgment.
