Halloween is the one day a year, you can wear a mask, and be whomever you want to be, without being criticized . Then, there is the "mask" many of us women wear everyday. The mask you wear that is used  to cover up depression, loneliness, low self esteem, and many other insecurities. I am sure many of us are guilty, that we sometimes never allow our emotions to surface and keep them hidden. I am sure keep it in, can become exhausting.

We have the tendency to feel denial, unworthiness, embarrassment, and guilt that we try to disguise behind the face (mask), that we have to constantly, put on for our families, peers, co-workers, and friends.

Maybe the woman behind the mask is a domestic violence survivor, sexual abused victim, or was once hurt by someone that she cared about. A natural response to get by in life is to cover up and hide how you really feel.

The day you choose to allow God to help you drop the mask, it will set you free. There will be no more pretending or hiding the beautiful person you are.
