Why don’t you remove your mask?

Look, we all wear masks… everyone everyday. Sometimes we wear them so much, we forget who we really are. And sometimes if we’re lucky, someone comes along and shows us who we really wanna be, who we should be.

– Nikita, Season 1

Why do we wear masks? Do we need to hide who we are? Is it because everyone is wearing them too? Are we afraid to show them what we are capable of? What do we fear? Why do we need to fit in? Why do we need to stand out? Why do we need other people’s approval?

Why do we have to pretend that we don’t want to take the masks off? Don’t we like to know each other and look through each other’s eyes? Don’t we all want to be who we are without judgement?

Who the hell invented those masks in the first place?

This post may be a bit weird. But nah. I like asking a lot of questions. I think I made sense. What do you think of masks?

When Life Was Simpler, I Knew A Little.

When life was simpler, I knew a little.

Just a random thought before I go to sleep. I realized that sometimes we don’t need to settle for simpler things. We don’t get to choose our problems but if we do, why stick with simple things? Where would it get you?

It’s like learning how to speak but instead you only choose to learn ABC’S, short words and form short phrases just enough to make sense. But is it enough to settle for that? What if you feel something and you can’t express a bit of it because your limited?

Everything we have is what we can handle. Never ever doubt what you can and never ever limit yourself to what you think you only can.
