The mask

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”

There are so many people who prefer living behind a mask, just because they are scared of their true self. Some of them are just pathological liars.

Well, there is a time when you cannot hide anymore! You won’t be fooling anyone anymore! Everybody will see who you really are!

This is a very scary moment, unless you do something about it! But sometimes it is close to impossible to make a change when you have lived for so long under a mask.

Some people had no choice but to use the mask in order to survive and this is just because of the sheer amount of the less educated people who are part of our social life and who are so stubbon in allowing new ideas to enter their lives. Revolution for them has an utopic meaning and brings them only fear.

…so because nobody wants to be scared, then nobody will do anything…

It isn’t easy to start your personal change but it is well worthed and brings benefits on the long run. But just because these changes will have an effect later on, it is so hard to convince yourself and moreover, the others that something must happen.

For me, writing brings me comfort and joy. It allowes me to express my ideas, hoping that somebody somewhere will appreciate my work. In the end, it will express my personality and my philosophy, that anyone can see.

Writing in English is my mask. It allowes me to filter the information twice before sharing it with you. Besides this – I am just trying my best! Soemtimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t! But I never stop trying!

It is so easy to criticise everybody else and it is so time consuming that it won’t give you any spare time for introspection. These people heavily rely on the information they receive from others. Unfortunately, these indivduals have lost their ability to filter the information and sometimes it looks like as if we went back to ancient times and lived again a life in a tribe…where the mask has even its own ritual…

What to do then? What’s the best way to benefit from all sides of the story?

For me it’s easy, because I’ve discovered myself and I know what I want! I know what makes me happy all the time! I know who my friends are! I know my potential and my limits! I never lie to myself! I know what love is!


I wish you all a wonderful day!
