I thought the above was a funny reminder of an important, real-life issue.
I feel so self-conscious to just be myself sometimes. In a way, it’s actually pretty self-absorbed to think that people notice, or would even care. I don’t mean this in a depressing way, just in a more realistic one.
It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives, thinking that we’re more important than we are. And that somehow, everyone’s going to notice if we mess up.
So we live our lives in fear. Fear of what others might think, fear of being caught, fear of being seen.
We’ve gotten so used to the masks that we’re afraid to let anyone see underneath, but we also have to remember that, even though we’re self-conscious and afraid, no one else will really notice that much.
So let’s be our most genuine, authentic selves, and dance like no one’s watching. Because hey, they aren’t. And even if they are, does it really matter that much?
