hide yourself away

sometimes it feels that we’re all wearing a mask.

people hide real emotion.
people hide opinions.
people hide excitement.
people hide fear.
people hide laughter.
people hide tears.

people hide.

i truly believe hiding is something that everyone can excel at at some point in their life, if not for prolonged periods. there was a time in my life when i felt like i was wearing a mask all the time. for a stint, i felt like no one really knew the real me, and if they would have found out this real me — they might have turned away running. it was an irrational fear, to be sure, but one that felt real and caused me to become an expert at hiding. it caused issues with how i viewed the world and other people.

hiding cost me a lot. it didn’t have to.

Does anybody know you at all?
