Drawing 39/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Before you keep reading comment your interpretation. You always blow my mind with your interpretations and creativity. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . This is inspired by the situation that I think happens to all of us at one point in time. When you realize someone who seemed to be on the same “wavelength” as you reveals their true self by an action or conversation that at first seems to be out of character but then you find out they have been wearing a “mask” the whole time. I’ve learned being vulnerable and open is the key to a happy and successful life because by showing your true self to the world you keep yourself in tune with what aligns with you. I believe this goes for all aspects in life. The ‘Be true to yourself’ concept sounds cliche now because it’s been said over and over again but it’s been said so much for a reason. If you put up a facade you will attract the wrong things in your work life and personal life. My favorite illustration and poem related to this is one by Shel Silverstein. I’ll share it in my IG story but the poem goes like this: She had blue skin, And so did he. He kept it hid And so did she. They searched for blue Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. —————————————————————————— Title: Take Off Your Mask —————————————————————————— Título: Quítate la máscara —————————————————————————— Título: Tire sua máscara —————————————————————————— Titre: Enlève ton masque —————————————————————————— Titolo: Togliti la maschera —————————————————————————— Titel: Entferne deine Maske —————————————————————————— Название: Снимите маску —————————————————————————— Başlık: Maskeni Çıkar —————————————————————————— العنوان: خلع قناعك —————————————————————————— عنوان: ماسک خود را بردارید —————————————————————————— Βγάλε την μάσκα σου
