In disguise as no one knows…

Everyone does it or has done it. I’m talking about hiding, or pretending when it comes to true feelings. We all do it. I myself have been known to hide certain things, especially feelings, keeping them bottled up inside. And I got pretty good at it too. People would think that everything was fine with me, but in reality, I was in pain, and dying inside.

But, that’s no good. What happens when you top a bottle, and things begin to get shaken up? That’s right, the pressure becomes too great, and then you have a mess to clean up. We need to learn how to keep the bottle from getting sealed, and not allow any pressure to build. No pressure, no mess.

Another thing that gets hidden, is fears that we all have. Fear of failure. Fear of people not accepting you. Fear of being alone or abandoned. That is something that you, and I, need to work on as well. Face fear and overcome it. Funny, I was watching TV and heard an awesome quote which fits today:

“Fear plays an interesting role in our lives. How dare we let it motivate us. How dare we let it into our decision making, into our livelihoods, into our relationships. It’s funny, isn’t it? We take a day a year to dress up in costume and celebrate fear”.  – Robert California (The Office)

How dare we. What we should dare to do is stand up, emerge from our shadows, and face our fears. OVERCOME our fears. Between not letting things build up inside, and facing, no, OVERCOMING your fears, who’s going to stop you from the life you want?

“We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others, that in the end we become disguised to ourselves” – François de la Rochefoucauld

  1. I love this and it is so true! One thing I realized just last night, from a TV show, is that people are intimidated by a person who is comfortable in their own skin. No one should be. We should all learn to be comfortable being who we are and not hiding that person from anyone.

    • That is true. We must learn to be true to ourselves, and not worry about what others think. We are who we are, and either you accept it, or move on. But, we need to first BECOME comfortable in our own skin.

      Thanks for the comment.
