The Masks We Wear


We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing some of our own skin. – Andre Berthiaume


We all wear masks, although the extent to which we layer ourselves or are aware of them varies greatly.

They are the edited and decorated versions we prefer to show to the world. What they shield are those parts of us that for whatever reasons, we don’t like or accept; or that others need us to hide to make them feel more comfortable.

However for the most part, we don’t even realize the masks are there.

We are all so flawed and vulnerable, albeit to varying degrees.  Some of us are just better at hiding our masks – even from ourselves.

And while we might buy into that false image the price we pay for being masked can be pretty steep.

But what if we decided to face our fear and rid ourselves of these masks…and decide to be authentic
