We all choose to live a secret life hiding our deep dark secrets inside. We drag ourselves to the point that the only way to perfectly fit in this world is to hide behind a mask. Yes we all wear a mask concealing who we truly are; pretending to be someone strong, someone unbreakable. We easily turn into someone else in the attempt to deceive those who surround us. We act different in front of different people. Searching for inner peace we keep changing the masks regularly.
Truth is you don’t wear masks to hide who you truly are, but to protect your heart and soul from being tainted and torn in pieces by the harsh judgement of others. The smiles and laughter you display are clever tricks to hide your pains and sorrows you carry within yourself. No matter how hard you try eventually you stop being yourself just to stand against the trials of this cruel world.
The worst part about wearing a mask is that sometimes we wear it for too long, forgetting who we truly are. And we start accepting it as our true face. Unfortunately as the people get to know us, they become friends with the illusion we create for them. We all wear masks to live a life we want, but i guess one day we will look at a mirror and realize that we don’t know the person who is staring back at us.
