The Masks We Wear

“He wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it.”

George Orwell

As we walk our routine in everyday life, we are filed into common situations and sorted into roles. As teens, there is constant input from family, teachers and peers on how they “should be”. Think of the bullying teens get from their classmates, the pressure from parents for good grades and influence from the media about their appearance, fashion and sexuality.

Think about yourself. Think about the masks you wear in different situations. You know the things you allow others to see. You know the things you don’t allow people to see.

Why hide the pain? (Feel free to answer in the comments or message me)

How hard is it to keep that poker face on? How easy is it to use the “filter app” to make it appear like you have it all together?

People meld to their surroundings. If we don’t make the decision to live our truth, we can completely lose our own identity and actually become the identity we’ve pretended to be to “fit in”.

I Samual 16:7. But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

Psalm 24:3-5 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
    And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not lift up his soul to what is false
    and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the Lord
    and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

If you need prayers or direction, feel free to message me. The world needs the REAL YOU because God created you for a purpose.
