Mask – a covering for all or part of the face, worn as a disguise, or to amuse or terrify other people.
Growing up my eyes were wide SHUT! They are wide open after tonight! You never truly know what someone is dealing with on the other side of their mask. Many of us wear masks. Some of us wear our masks…to disguise the pain, to avoid the truth, to destroy, to draw in those that we wouldn’t normally attract, for gain, and so much more.
Wearing a mask to hide the pain and truth can weigh on an individual. Removing the mask is not an easy task. After years of hiding behind it, it may be very hard to be vulnerable enough to open up to someone or something that has the potential to hurt you but not the intentions.
