🎭 March 16, 2019: Quote of The Day & My Thoughts

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. - James Baldwin


“When I was younger I hid behind a mask designed with a happy smile to convey to the world that I was fine, okay, great.  It was a lie.  I was hiding the truth of hurt, pain, and utter sadness.  As I’ve grown older, I refuse to wear that mask ever again.  I’m just me, simply me.  I may goof and clown around. I may be serious with many thoughts in my head that I almost fear to drown. I may be a child-like little monster with an attitude. I’m also a person that shows compassion and kindness to everyone I encounter. This person is simply me.  The one that refuses to live behind a mask ever again.

  1. We all have worn masks of happiness to hide how we truly feel. I commend anyone who wears their emotions on their sleeves. Bravo, Beckie.

  2. We all wear masks, l wore masks for many years, because l wasn’t allowed to be me – whilst in the main, l don’t wear them, of recent times l have taken to wearing them again to preserve my emotions from being always seen by those close to me.

    Sadly we don’t live in a perfect world, and more people have to wear masks – more people do it simply to fit in to a demanding society that expects conformity.

    Nice post Beckie 🙂
