Digital Mask

          "To be nobody but yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." E.E. Cummings

            It can take a lifetime to figure out who you really are, but a good test is to see how you act and who you become when no one else is around. How are people influencing who you are?

So true. How are we acting when there are other people around compared to when we're alone? Shouldn't we be the same person through and through? 

Sometimes we tend to be a people pleaser, acting like we are good enough in the sight of others.

I've been hiding, hiding for so long right behind my digital mask
I've been trying to be someone I'm not
All these perfectly fake people push us to insane ideals
They're nothing more than counterfeit images
                                      Kutless: Beyond The Surface

The drive that cause people to be who they don't want to be is the mentality of "pleasing-others" as the primary purpose of life.   People lose their true identity and are living a deceptive mask of who others want them to be. We should stop the pretending business and be who you are, a rich, blessed, hopeful, and full-of-love being that God created and redeemed out of his abounding, everlasting love for us.

Let us be true to ourselves, Being true to ourselves is one of the greatest feelings that you’ll feel.  God is right there to accept who we are and what capabilities we have.

Don't give up in to everything the world around tells you to be.  Open up your mind release yourself.  Stop the lying, stop comparing who you are to what you see.  Never let fear hold back you to change.


  1. Soo true. Yan ang tama pero na kadalasan mahirap gawin.

  2. Ouch.. tinamaan ako dito ahh.. sometimes kasi i tend to please people making myself as the good one.. and then minsan pag ako na lang at walang tao dun na lumalabas ang totoong ako.. wehhh..

  3. Perfect! I have once an email telling exactly that- who are you when no one is watching?. I saved it on and made it my desktop wallpaper. The message is so beautiful we have to be reminded always the basic and constant search for our purpose- one of which is to be true to ourselves.

  4. go within your self ko know who we realy are..meditate

  5. hi! good morning!

    Minsan nga ganun tayo (people pleaser) at nakalulungkot isipin na unti-unti tayong kinakain ng ating pagpapanggap. Marahil may kanya-kanya tayong dahilan... marahil may kanya-kanya tayong pamamaraan upang ikubli kung sino tlga tayo nguni't sa kalaunan di naman tayo magiging masaya.

    Ibahagi ko lang iyong tula na nabasa ko na sa palagay ko ay may kaugnayan sa iyong entry.


Speak Your Mind.. Let it Out!
