We All Wear Masks

Huff Post: by Peter J. Rubenstein.

Choosing Your Legacy

We all wear masks. We wear a mask to hide our self-perceived faults and weakness: the mask of certainty when we are shaken, the mask of gregariousness when we might be shy the mask of humor when we’re hurting, the mask of a victim when we’re not.

We wear masks with friends, classmates, business associates, and even spouses concerned that for them to know the truth about us would be for them to think less of us. Not all masks are destructive or wrong, and some of them may be essential and indispensable if we are to make it through. But to be unaware of them is treacherous and dishonest.
