I AM YOUR MASK


WHO AM I?
     I am your mask. Inside me is the other person you're working on becoming - the imperfect, but REAL you. Inside your mask is your true character. Or so you hope.  You went with that common advice -'fake it until you make it.' So, I am what you think people want to see that you are - the really good wife and mother,  the professional woman, the student, the attentive and caring father, the nice neighbor or some other kind of pretentious bullshit that buys you cred with THOSE folks on the outside you want to impress. I may be the work mask. The Church or religion mask. The guy/gal-pal mask. The volunteer service mask. Keeping all this straight, takes a lot of energy - more energy than being truthful - being who you really are. And then, there is the problem of getting caught in your mask forever - forgetting to spend time building the REAL you so that at the end of the day all you have is a really strong mask and you're soft - or empty - in the middle.

WHY AM I HERE?
