Hiding Behind Our Masks

We all hide behind our “persona” the mask we put on to interact with others in our business meetings, out in social situations, etc. Most of us have the desire to have someone know our “true self.” Read the article below in order to see how to get past the persona and be more “real” with people.

  1. I’ve found that most people don’t want you to be real with them, when you attempt to they become somewhat uncomfortable. It’s is indeed a lonely world…

    • I believe this is due to insecurity about being judged for who they are. We are all concerned about judgement in one form or another. We tend to reserve “being real” with those closest to us. My belief is to try to be as real as you can with others regardless of their insecurities. It is amazing how magnetic an authentic person can be!

  2. I am very fortunate to have a small group of friends who are all very close. We are able to see through each other’s masks and it is wonderful to feel “safe” with them. We like to say that we love each other “warts and all”.
