Masking reality.

Halloween has passed for another year. Children and adults alike in disguise. Some in costumes for fun, others to instill fear in whomever they happen to run into.
I have my own personal thoughts on Halloween but this is not what this is about. I may touch on that topic in the future.
This is about you and me. How we live on a daily basis. Simply to get through any given day…some of us hide behind an invisible mask. A happy face to hide the pain that we strive to come out of on our own. Actually I have met women and men that wear a different mask for different occasions. A few of these are at places of work, on dates, at home behind closed doors or in the open and yes even church. Reasons are, we don’t want to make waves so we go with the flow by disguising how we actually feel. Another explanation is we are hiding how we really act behind closed doors out of the public eye. Yes and some are blatantly pretending in the open. Without judgement I find this to be very dishonest. Can we not just be real. Who are we?
I am speaking to myself here as well. I am a peacemaker. A peacemaker that used to wear a mask to hide my fear of man and my broken heart. You know, be strong at all cost. Actually in my case it was to protect others early in life…..this pattern continued right into my marriage. Hiding behind the happy wife mask for the sake of the children and the “what will people think” fear I had drilled into me if I was to leave.
Now that I am divorced and single, a grandmother and a great grandmother. My intention is to be nothing ~ if not real. How about you? Let’s do this together for the health of it.
Take the walls down, throw your mask off to the side and allow people in. Take a chance on life, take a chance on love. You might get hurt, but what if you don’t. We just want to know the gift of you, the real you. Here is to freedom. Blessings friends.

    Very good, Edna. Good outlook on being healthy by removing masks. I have found this to be true for myself as well. You are a true gift of YOU to John and I. Thanks for the golden nuggets of truth Edna. I do enjoy your blogs.

    It is interesting how we worry more about others (the world) and their impressions of us, than those who really matter…our selves and those who are closest to us whom we really love. An expense we should never undertake as it ends up worthless.
