Does anybody ever really know someone else? Do you know the REAL person you call your spouse? Do your friends and loved ones truly know the REAL you? Do you wear a mask to keep the REAL you from anyone?
As human beings we tend to show one face to the world and an entirely different face to those we are closest to. We put on our mask and we go out to greet the world. And finally, there is a YOU that NOBODY really knows - - sometimes.
Who gets to see the REAL you, the person you are when you are alone and nobody is looking?
I wore a mask for a very long time and I didn’t even know it. It went something like this. I would feel down and out, frustrated, and totally out of sorts. But, when I stepped outside my house into the world, I had a smile on my face. When asked how I was doing, I always replied positively that everything was just fine and I was doing okay.
Behind the smile, my mask, I hid the truth.
Have you ever worn a mask? Do you wear one now? What is Behind Your Mask? Do you know anyone else who wears a mask?
What are your thoughts on “hiding behind a mask”?
