Anyone else out there live a double life?

At work I am this hard working/ steel toe boot wearing engineer in a dying metal industry fighting the production numbers and being the only woman in charge...sometimes having to be ruthless to get things done in the safest and most efficient manner possible.

At home I light soy candles, put on my girliest outfit with a cute vintage apron, and cook a gourmet dinner for my husband...I spend my weekend grocery shopping, meal planning, laundry, knitting, cleaning, etc...and I couldn't be happier!

I didn't really think about how different my lives are until recently...it kinda creeps me out. I am not looking for anyone to diss me, just seeing if anyone out there has a similar life or feels at odds with their two different personas.

Thank you

I have stopped caring what others think of me.

I have realized that everyone leads a "Double Life" and that everyone is a hypocrite...

I got so tired of wearing a mask that I now focus on being myself and, if need be, simply keeping my mouth shut when those that are not comfortable with their true selves try to pretend they are different.

I do not deny anything but I also don't actively bring some things I would rather keep personal... Like my sexuality and sex life, etc.

If asked outright, I will honestly answer but since I allow people to believe what their own biases make them want to believe about me, I don't feel I hide anything... I let their own idea of who I am take precedence over who and what I really am.
