We try to be authentic, don’t we? We don’t want to be artificial. Our smiles cover sadness and loneliness. Our laugh covers nervousness, awkwardness. We try to minimize our insecurity and fear. Instead of showing our weakness, we tell a joke. Bravely we dive into a project telling ourselves we can do it. We show our strength and competence, not our confusion. Our concern for others hides our need, distraction from our own problems. We try to be open and honest, but our stories are edited. We hide behind who we want to be, not showing who we are. And yet, somehow, we are known.
