Most of us have two faces we wear and I was once guilty of this in the past. The public face of course which is carefully and strategically planned to give the best impression possible.
Next we have the secret face who we really are as a person when no one is around watching. Most of us are afraid to show our secret face in public. As a result, our public face is a work of perfection and presence a carefully crafted person of who and what we are.
The truth is most of us are afraid to show our secret face because we want people to like us. We want to be validated by others to make us feel better about ourselves. However, the validation you seek from others can only be found within you. You have to become the person you were born to be and learn how to become comfortable in your own skin period.
The person I was afraid to be was the real me. I got sick and tired of seeking validation from others and decided to face my fears and became a Law Unto Self (Knowledge of Self). Eventually, I hit rock bottom and the only place left at the time was straight to the top.
During a time period in my life I didn’t seek validation because I didn’t really have the time. I stripped away my secret face and let it all hangout around my friends and family. Some where shocked and didn’t want to listen to want I had to say. Some wanted to argue and make fun of what I was saying along with my actions.
I’m fine with the response I received from some of my closest friends and family. Why, because the person I was supposed to be is the person most of them wanted to show up. That’s my tribe, a small group of people who would have never showed up if I didn’t take off the secret face.
What about you? Are you afraid to be the person you were born to be? Who might be waiting for you to show your secret face?
