There Are Many Masks We Hide Behind.

So many people have an array of different masks that they wear daily.


What is the reason for this?


Yes i would say so.

The fear you will not like me because i am different to you.

The fear that i will not say the right thing at the right time.

That i am not thin enough.

Smart enough

Old enough.


Beautiful enough.

Well the list could continue and of course would be different for everyone of us.

The bottom line is this.

I feel you wont love me for me.

So then i get scared wear a the mask to fit in with what i think you want me to be.

Maybe in order to fit in with.

What i think you think is the right way to be.

Crazy right?

Yes it is and a big part of it comes down to not wanting to be rejected.

Essentially just wanting the one thing we all want.

Which is to be loved accepted and on one level or another cared about deeply by another.

We have been designed that way and people can argue this all they like but it will not change that fact.

The masks we wear can be for a number of reasons as i mentioned above.

Some common causes would be past hurts or trauma suffered by an individual.

They have developed seemingly impenetrable thick concrete walls around them.

Sometimes a moat on top of that as a result of what happened to them.

This is totally understandable and normal.

With the willingness of the individual that has been hurt.

Time and professional help this can be healed and one can go on to live a wonderful life full of joy,peace and happiness.

Refuse to wear the masks anymore.

Stop hiding behind them.

This way you will be free.

If you ask me why i am writing this tonight i could not answer that question.

I do not write my fingers just type and then it ends up on the page.

I like how and when that happens.

Its a beautiful thing and it happens quite often.

I will end this post by saying it dose not matter what you have done in life.

It dose not matter who you are but just.


Not what someone else wants you to be.

For by doing that you will never be happy.

Be you and do what you want to do.

Do what you love to do.

Live how you want to live.

Treat people around you right and this will free you up so much.

That you will feel on top of the world.

You will be able to give.


Peace 🙂
