Every society forces people to live according to the norms and rules that they deem is appropriate, forcing people with different ideas and thoughts to wear masks. Unfortunately, no matter how much you deny this, but you do care about what people say or think about you. You are always worried that you are being judged, till you reach a point were you don’t care anymore. You reach a point were you grab every mask that you’ve worn and tear it apart, and you reach a point were you are done being fake and untrue to the most important person in the world and that is yourself.
Most of the time you don’t realize you are wearing a mask, you actually believe this is you. You believe that these are your idea, your thoughts and your personality, so you don’t bother with questioning yourself. Everything you are, is what society, parents, friends, neighbors and acquaintances told you to be. You’ve been shaped the way they desired and according to their own beliefs – which does not necessarily have to be bad, but doubt will either change you and make you stronger or just make you stronger because you found that you are already on the right path.
I understand the fear of taking the step of doubt, it’s earth shattering; it’s like walking through a storm as you search for your home. It is a necessary evil though because the result is exquisite, because you are finally free of the chains everyone has been forcing upon you and the chains you have forced upon yourself. You are free to be who you are, and you realize that you no longer care about being judged.
