10 Life Lessons 2020 taught me
#3/10 WE ALL WEAR A MASK:- In today’s world, all of us wear a mask. No, I am not talking about the mask to protect us from Corona. I am talking about an invisible mask. Most of the time we try to present ourselves as appropriate (Mr. Appropriate) and in some cases as exceptional (Mr. Exceptional). We say and behave does not match with what we feel.
What does it all tell us? It means that we are rarely authentic. By putting up these masks, we are always pretending, trying to be something we are not, and hardly sharing our true feelings.
So, why are we hiding Mr. Authentic? It is because of fear, especially the fear of embarrassment, the fear of seeing Mr. Authentic as weak, incomplete, and thinking that people will not like it if it is exposed. We do this day after day without realizing that it is taking us away from our calling or who we truly are and what we represent.
When will we wake up and get rid of this fakeness and have the courage to be AUTHENTIC.
Will you now focus on being the real ‘YOU’ in front of others without being afraid of displaying your weaknesses?
What mask do you want to throw away?
