Do You Wear A Mask?

I know, crazy question right? But, in the past year I’ve come to ask myself that due to a recent change in my life. Someone that I shared my life with took a drastic turn in his. He wasn’t the same person he was when I first met him. Or was he? Maybe I just thought he wasn’t the same because it didn’t fit with our lives – the way we were at the moment. Maybe he was the same from day one but just changed or hid what he was really like because of me.

I think I know myself pretty well. If asked to write a bio, I can do that and be pretty honest. Of course, what you see now might not be the person my dd sees at home 🙂 or the person I am while at work. I think we wear different masks to suit each aspect of our lives. Work, home, family, friends…they all see a side of ourselves that we share/show.

Is that fair? Probably not. But a lot of people are judgmental and people can be mean spirited and cruel and if media has taught us anything, if we don’t fit in with the ‘norm’ we aren’t ‘right’. Then again, what is the ‘norm’ and what is ‘right’. I love those that can live their lives free of any judgements…they don’t care what other people think. I wish I could be more like that. I wish that we as a whole, weren’t judgmental or condemning.

One day…maybe…
