The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world.
The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone.
It is the truest reflection of who you are.
But why do we have to have so many faces?
Why do we have to behave differently around different people?
Why is it so hard to be yourself, to let everyone accept you the way you are without an expectation of judgement?
It is the society, who makes us believe in these kind of faces. The influence is too big and too much.
If you arent like the rest of the world, you just dont fit in.
This feeling, this kind of constraint destroy us, make us believe in someone, who doesnt reflect our true self.
I dont understand how it could be fun to be a puppet?
A marionett of the society – funny to describe yourself as an object instead of a person. But an object defines the meaning of something unlively, something that doesnt have the right to stand up and the ability to decide.
Dont be an object, dont let the society control you, your life, your beauty and all of the aspects in your own world.
I know its not that easy, everyone around you is going to be like the others and to hold off is hard .
But having the right friends is important just like your patience and your self-esteem. Dont let anyone have an effect on your emotional wellbeing and most of all on your life.
Its easy to lose your patience but way way more rewarding than you can ever imagine to keep patience. I mean, men and women both can suffer from self esteem issues, nowadays it is so common. They just take others opinion to seriously and change themselves, their feelings.
You are the only person who is in charge of how you feel about yourself. Nobody else can possibly do that for you. You get to decide if you believe you are beautiful or not, and nobody can take it away from you. If someone suggests that you arent beautiful, you can consider how sad it is that they have such a limited view of beauty. Dont think that you have to prove yourself, and dont let them think that you have to care of your self-importance.
Let us have the freedom, to realize that we can choose who we truly are, and that it has nothing to do with our beauty but only with their limitations.
