"Do you know the real you? I don't think I know the real me. I have been trying to work this out over the past sex years and still don't know. I find its so easy to keep comparing the now to the past, should I still be that person? Life is scary, our parents, teachers, culture, society and the media provide us with a narrow band of ‘acceptable’ ways of how we should be, and when that doesn't conform it our mind, we panic and hide behind the mask of the person we think society will accept. Showing our flaws and even to some extent what we class as our good points can be a terrifying thought. We seem to believe that if we came out as our true self we may not be liked, loved or well thought and its the idea of losing these precious things that keeps our masks firmly in place.
Who said life was easy? TAKE OFF THAT MASK!!!!!" - Susan
You Don't REALLY Know Yourself Until You've Gone Through Hard Sh*t
Think you know who you are? Your future self disagrees.
