It just hurts so much.
Oh the shame of being you.
& so you detached and you wore a mask every day.
You wore it so well that you even believed it yourself.
It was the only way to survive, the only way you knew how.
So what happens now?
What happens now you know?
Do you choose authenticity?
Or do you pick up another mask?
You do have a choice.
& you start by being honest with yourself.
But if i take off the mask…. who am i? How do i know who i was before the world told me who i should be?
Your a survivor. Start there.
