I’m a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to be always nice, always smiling, always happy, that’s not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiseled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand.

-Alicia Keys



We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we’re capable of.

-Dr. Phil McGraw


Wearing a mask wears you out. Faking is fatiguing. The most exhausting activity is pretending to be what you know you aren’t.

-Rick Warren


Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice

In the church where  a wedding has been

Lives in a dream

Waits at the window, wearing the face

That she keeps in a jar by the door

Who is it for

-The Beatles


The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of the world but those who fight and win battles that others do not know anything about.

-Jonathan Harnisch  in “The Brutal Truth”



  1. Great blog Brenda. True about masks there are days I haven’t got energy to do this and I go to bed exhausted. It takes a lot out of you, to constantly pretend everything is okay, when really all you want to do is scream and hide.
