Truer selves

“Everyone wears masks, metaphorically speaking.” – Ben Stein

Early on we’re taught that to get by, it’s best to conform to our surroundings. Join in, and be a part of the group. What we may sacrifice is our own individuality.

It can be hard to reclaim that individuality. Overwhelmingly so. But becoming your true self isn’t impossible.

As Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
