DISGUISES WE ALL WEAR THEM

DISGUISES               WE ALL WEAR THEM

DISGUISES IS OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY, AND ITS MEANING IS A VERY IMPORTANT WORD.  WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A DISGUISE? 

WEBSTER DEFINITION-GIVE OR CONCEAL ONE (ONESELF) A DIFFERENT APPEARANCE IN ORDER TO PROTECT ONE’S IDENTITY.  

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION OF DISGUISES-MASKS WE WEAR IN ORDER TO HIDE WHO WE ARE AS A PROTECTIVE MECHANISM.

WE ALL WEAR DISGUISES FROM TIME TO TIME.  YOU PROBABLY WEAR ONE AND DO NOT EVEN REALIZE IT.  WE HIDE WHO WE ARE.  WHY DO WE DO THIS BECOMES OUR DISCUSSION TODAY.  THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WHY WE WEAR DISGUISES.  1. TO PROTECT OUR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS. 2.  HIDE A PART OF YOU THAT MIGHT BE VIEWED BY THE OTHER PERSON YOU INTERACT WITH AS A CHARACTER FLAW.  3.  CONCEAL THE TRUTH WHEN WE DON’T FEEL SAFE TO SHARE IT.  4.  AN INITIAL REACTION FOR MOST PEOPLE IS TO WEAR A DISGUISE WHEN FIRST MEETING SOMEONE.  5.  WE ARE AFRAID OF HOW OUR ACTIONS WILL BE VIEWED BY OTHERS.  6.  LACK OF SELF CONFIDENCE. 7.  FEAR OF JUDGEMENT BY ANOTHER. 

DISGUISES ARE COMMON FOR US BECAUSE OVERALL, WE SIMPLY DON’T FEEL SAFE SHARING WHO WE REALLY ARE.  I AM NOT SAYING WE ALL SHOULD NOT HAVE SECRETS.  I AM NOT SAYING WE TELL OUR LIFE STORY WHEN WE FIRST MEET SOMEONE.  HOWEVER, DISGUISES HAVE GOTTEN WAY TOO COMMON.  WHY DO WE HAVE TO MOLD OURSELVES TO FIT WITH OTHERS? 

WHY CAN’T WE JUST BE. WHO WE ARE?  THIS IS OUR ISSUE, NOT THEIRS.  MANY TIMES, WE “ASSUME” HOW ANOTHER VIEWS WHO WE ARE AND WE ARE NOT CORRECT.  MANY TIMES I HAVE MISJUDGED WHO ANOTHER PERSON IS INSIDE THE HEART AND SOUL.  IT HAS COST ME MANY POTENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS IN MY LIFE I COULD HAVE HAD.  IT HAS ALSO SAVED ME FROM GETTING TOO CLOSE TO THE WRONG PERSON.  THERE IS A BETTER WAY TO HANDLE THIS, HOWEVER.  WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE HONEST ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE FEEL TO OTHERS WE ARE CONNECTING WITH.  

IT IS TIME FOR US TO SHED OUR DISGUISES.  IF WE FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE AROUND SOMEONE, THERE VERY WELL MAY BE AN INSTINCTUAL REACTION TO THIS PERSON AND YOU SHOULD BACK OFF.  IT IS OKAY, HOWEVER TO SIMPLY “NOT ENGAGE” AND BE HONEST.  TELL ANOTHER PERSON YOU DON’T WISH TO CONTINUE COMMUNICATING WITH THE REASON WHY IN THE KINDEST WAY POSSIBLE.  WE ALL WEAR DISGUISES FROM TIME TO TIME.  PERHAPS, IT IS TIME TO TAKE OFF THE MASKS.  I AM NOT REFERRING TO OUR PROTECTIVE MASKS WE NEED TO WEAR JUST IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING.  

IT IS OKAY TO BE EXACTLY HOW GOD MADE YOU TO BE.  IT IS OKAY OVER TIME TO LET DOWN YOUR GUARD WITH THE RIGHT PERSON YOU CAN HAVE A LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP WITH OF ANY KIND.  IT IS OKAY SIMPLY TO BE YOURSELF.  IF THE OTHER PERSON CAN’T ACCEPT YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE, PART OF LOVING YOURSELF IS PUTTING THE PROBLEM EXACTLY WHERE IT IT BELONGS:  ON THE OTHER PERSON, DUE TO THE MASK THEY WEAR.  STOP HIDING.  START BEING MORE DIRECT.  BE KIND, BUT HONEST, AND MOST OF ALL, SIMPLY BE WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE.
