We all want to be brave and show the world that we can cope in all circumstances. We want to be like heroes and our pride doesn’t let us show failure. So we put on a mask for the outside world, sending false messages that everything is alright.
Of course then, we are wondering – why on earth can’t anybody see that I need help and why is that nobody is offering any support? Well, the answer is simple – probably you know it too by now – people are so involved in their lives and their problems that they will not notice you and your issues, unless you point it out to them.
I used to put on a brave face at work so nobody could see that my life was falling apart at home. There I was, a great leader at my workplace, with lots of responsibility, which was getting harder and harder to handle.
Sometimes it pays us if we can show a little vulnerability. You would be surprised how many doors will open by doing so, even in the corporate world when everybody is tough on the surface. However, when you start to pay attention, you will discover that lots of employees and other people hide behind their masks too.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
It took me a while to realise that originality is the key to success, in both work and family environment. You can still be strong and stick with your values and beliefs with some sign of emotional intelligence.
“The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.” Albert Einstein
Your mask is your defence mechanism, but this is the reason why perhaps you cannot find your place in your world. Be you; be proud of who you are and what you stand for. Don’t let anyone make you feel that you have to hide away your originality.
“Why be a copy, when you were born to be an original.” Oscar Wilde
