What are you hiding?

The mask………some will admit to the daily ritual of preparing to go before your peers,co-workers, employees, church family, friends, classmates ending with the last step ….the mask. We can’t allow anyone to know about our
flaws.

Mask – Covering for all or part of the face as a disguise or for protection

After 29 years of marriage, 4 children (of which 3 were teenagers at the same time) I can tell you there is no joy, peace or fulfillment in wearing and hiding behind a mask. It may start out as the perfect remedy to cover our feelings of inadequacies or reward us with temporary friendships and fool some of the people some of the time. However, it doesn’t last and it is not rewarding. I repeat it is not rewarding.

A few side effects are: stress, broken relationships, regret, bitterness,lack of confidence, continued low self esteem and anger.

Most of all it is a barrier, it stops God from having the opportunity to heal our feelings of inadequacy, rejection,intimidation, inferiority, abandonment, loneliness etc. You see, Father God wants to touch you right where it hurts the most. Our job is to acknowledge these areas and bring them to him.

The other barrier is that it stops relationships that God wants to bring into our lives (true, genuine relationships). Friends who will be there regardless; Friends who accept the good and the bad and who realize like you they are not perfect and will provide grace and build you up.

Where is the mask at home, before our husbands, our children, parents, immediate family? We wear a mask at these times however, I have found through my personal experiences, counseling and coaching others that we are selective about wearing a mask in these instances.

“You don’t really know a person until you have observed his behavior with a child, a flat tire, when the boss is away, and when he thinks no one will ever know.” Author unknown

Well that is true the above determines an individuals character…who you are when no-one’s looking.

Father God knows who you are and he still loves you. He wants so much to help you…. if you will just let him. It’s time for us to lift each other…. it’s time to help each other, comfort each other with the comfort we’ve been comforted with. How can we unless we take off the mask and let Father God work?

Why do we do this? Is there an issue with low self esteem? Are we afraid to allow
people to get close and see the real person?

If you want to live your best empowered life it is necessary to discover your
authentic self and celebrate the authentic you. Maybe you’ve lost years to
living pretentiously, some of you may not even know yourself because you’ve
worn this mask for so long. Besides it also fuels disempowering behaviors.

It’s time. Finally realize a life of empowerment, purpose, passion and prosperity.
Ladies, it’s ok ….. take off the mask. Be free and celebrate the authentic
you, embrace the uniqueness of you. Arise savvy woman, woman entrepreneur,
WAHM and shine!

You are a woman by God’s design. He wants to present you (his workmanship) to the world for His glory. Remember God in you = Empowerment
