I think it’s kind of sad that we spend most of our lives hiding behind this shiny and stunning mask which reflects the perfect life. You lie to yourself that everything is okay and everyone wonders what happens when you break down all of a sudden.
You keep this mask on for the longest time to hide all the ragged, painful emotions that nobody talks about. When you begin to suffocate you build more walls to keep them from coming out. But all you’re doing is giving them more time to circle around your heart. You’re giving them more time to grow inwards instead of out.
What if you surrender to it all? Imagine how liberating it would be if your words bounced out without a filter. What if taking off these masks and breaking down these walls is simply the beginning of a healing path?
Imagine what happens when you surrender to the fact that life is full of unexpected challenges and sometimes, “it’s okay not to be okay”.
