Bare yourself to the world

We can only truly be ourselves if we let go of all the roles the mind makes us play. Presenting this false image to the outside world, the subterfuge that we engage in daily…masking ourselves in fear of the real person being seen.

To be truly ourselves we have to quit acting and start just being. We have to be brave enough to be brutally truthful and faithful to the person we really are. We have to step away from the charade and become the naked version that we hide.

The different hats we wear to act out all those stories, that our ego wants us to be, only mask the real you and me.

We suffer behind these masks and facades…where the real person is crying to be seen.

Let go of stories, throw out the costumes and bare the real you to the world and end the suffering each acted out role causes us and others.

Double life

When we are not ourselves we end up living a double life, where there could be one mask for work and one for home.

In fact, we could have multiple masks, but inside we just want to have one and show it to the world always.

It is one of the hardest things we face and it takes a huge amount of bravery to just show ourselves as we are.
