You think they tell you everything?
When you ask for the truth is it what you wanted to hear or what you feared/expected to hear?
Doesn’t expectations get you what you wanted?!
Never rely on ones truth as your only belief, for it is their truth and no one elses.
Just as your truth is yours.
Are you always 100% honest with no exaggeration or left out details?
Truth is there is no right answer, no such thing as being real when pride keeps you from revealing your true self.
It hurts to feel so deep and even more to hide it.
Oscars to us all,
for the mask we as a society learn to wear in social settings to fit the status quo.

  1. Thank you. It seems at 51 my mask has cracked and what I found peeping out was a shy, grinning, little boy who I left behind a long time ago. And now after all this time I am once again the new boy at a new school trying to learn how to play. Maybe I can do it better this time. 🙂

    1. Yes indeed thanks for the feed back. Being new isn’t so bad , but faking it will only make you hate school when the act gets tiresome. Be yourself and allow people to get to know you. Its such a waste to mask yourself , because when you self reflect the damage will hurt you internally. I’m sure you’re a great person so don’t be afraid to show it, its all right to flow with the status quo, but still maintain your individuality. Trend setters are more respected than followers. Keep that in mind and you’ll be gold.
