Do Invisible Masks Protect?
In my book, Living Learning Loving, I tell how I had lived behind a mask, not really knowing myself at the time.
“. . . my mask no longer fit and slowly the edges curled back and I could see the deep impressions that wearing it had left on my life. I also got a glimpse of the person underneath. I was growing now and these growing pains were uncomfortable.”Living Learning Loving
Life isn’t easy for women who think they must fit a mold whether it is because of religion or family dynamics. Try as you might eventually the mask will no longer fit. As Florence Littauer wrote, “Many people are playing roles they never auditioned for, on stages they didn’t design, while wearing masks they don’t know how to remove.“
