Prettier without the mask

How do we all hide our anxieties?The question came strongly to my mind after a stressful day.

Don’t tell me you never get anxious.

Moving from post to post and pillar to pillar, I broke down the day that same day and cried. We all have various ways of dealing with stress but I’d say the majority of us don’t address it. We hide it.

A great number of us cover our anxieties and uncertainties through work. We choose to get so busy. We get on the treadmill of life , thinking constant activities would drown out our feelings. The thread mill of life doesn’t even help anyone lose calories. It just works you.

Β There is this general notion that if you don’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist. We get so interested in ignoring our problems hoping it will go away but when it finally builds up, and all the pent up frustration explodes, such a person become a mess. That’s when you see people go into depression. Depression sound surreal to you? It is in no way surreal.

After eveeything, do you return to the cycle of working your emotions away?Using responsibilities as a pretext for not having to face your mental health. Why are we all searching for a mask?

Let everyone discover and exploit every new emotion, every feeling, whether of pain, happiness, distress, love. Face that pet before it becomes a giant. Lets all battle one day at a time. One day at a time. Leave each day’s worry with that day. Don’t try to ignore and work it off. Address it.

You’re prettier without the mask of pretence on.
