I Wear a Mask

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 47 People

    I wear masks daily for many hours.

    . My bf is forcing me to put on masks, to help me stop smoking. I think it's a little tough to wear for so long, but I guess I'll get used to it sometime.

    Most people think I'm happy.

    I'm not. My health is slowly worsening and no one can see it. I just have to grin and deal with it.

    All day I act neutral

    or annoyed so people can't see that I feel fat, ugly, and stupid. I only open up to a few people and I love them so much but sometimes I need more. I feel like I've grown out of the mask but I'm so insecure its like its welded to my face. I don't want to admit to my parents...

    I don't trust people.

    Sometimes I think I do but when it comes down to it I don't think I know how to trust people. I wear this mask all the time so no one can see the real me. I put on that smile, while on the inside I am screaming for someone to just get it. But how are they supposed to if all I do...

    It's not a physical mask,

    but a metaphorical one.

    Sometimes I just wonder

    if anyone else is like me. Y'know, if anyone else is broken and pretending not to be. If anyone else acts like they're the best, because they feel as if they're the worst. I wonder if I'm surrounded by people who wear masks, just like I do.

    I use an actually mask

    so I can be myself on YouTube. Once I take it off another goes on. But now I'm starting to wonder... Which mask is actually a mask.
