Take Off the Mask
I write about different things here. Some basketball or sports related and others just life related.
I have had positive feedback on both which wasn't my point in the first place starting this 6 years ago. It was a place to write and it made me feel better with much of the stress that I happened to face at that time.
But there are some who have made derogatory comments mostly subtle, but comments often said with a grin. I know where they come from. Some of these people are quiet people and would never share their thoughts or life publicly, so to them this is a dumb idea.
For others, it is that they haven't allowed themselves to admit or maybe even think about some of the things I write about.
Because to them, to admit or even to consider they may not have it all together all the time is somehow a sign of weakness.
I get it.
I understand how society works, maybe that's why we have so many people medicated, violent and unhappy. They have never been given the green light by mom or dad or a spouse to open their minds or better yet, to open their mouths.
To open your mouth and to show your fears or anxiety isn't a bad thing unless it becomes an every day all the time thing. Then it probably shows that you need more help than just typing in a blog.
Find someone that you can talk to. Find someone you don't have to wear your worldly mask to.
Find someone you can be real with.
It's up to you.
