“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.” – Oscar Wilde

People who understand this, become other people’s masks, wielding disproportionate power.

We see this on anonymous platforms, unions, associations and communities.

We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing some of our own skin. – André Berthiaume

Be careful the masks you put on. There is always a risk that you become the mask, because of the fear of taking it off and its associated wounds and untold discomfort.

Tear off your mask. Your face is glorious. – Rumi

In the end, we must recognise ourselves when we look at our journey.

The mask becomes a poor reflection.
The mask averages truths.

Speak your truth.
