People are made up not of cells, flesh and bone; they are made up of lies! Lies which vary in severity, size, weight and volume! Lies which differ when they come out as spoken words!
The larger, heavier and more severe the lies are, the worse that person is! The smaller, lighter and less severe the lies are, the better the person turns out to be!
People spend their whole lives wearing masks! I will list 3 types below:
Animal masks: used by Africans to connect with the spirit of the world.
The shameful mask: to hide stupidity and ignorance.
The iron mask: used for torture.
As I believe, people nowadays mostly wear the “shameful” masks to hide not only their ignorance but their lack of feelings and their constant need to mock others and their feelings. Only a few hundreds use the iron mask as a way to torture themselves for the mistakes they or others made.
So, what am I getting to you might wonder?
According to me, people try so hard to hide who they really are from each other because they know; deep inside, that they are liars by default! Only those who reveal themselves to others find out that they are similar and therefore they can connect!
Why would I say that?
Well, this is the morale of two recent stories I’ve experienced recently (putting all other stories aside!): It is really easy for people to say words because words don’t cost anything, they are free of charge! Yet, when it comes to actions, which supposedly speaks louder than words, people “chicken out”, “back down”, or accidentally remove their masks to reveal their REAL priorities!
