Have you ever stood in front of a mirror and wondered, “Who am I?” Have you worn the celebrity face for so long, that you don’t really know who you are yourself? Does it seem as though you have wasted your life being someone else (a fake) just to get along or fit in.
We don’t want to admit that we are living phony lives, so we stay busy enough that we never have to deal with the way we really are. God wants us to be honest and real. Now, look in the mirror again, what do you see? What does it mean to be authentic? Being authentic means to be true, genuine and real.
What are you afraid of? The keys to unlocking the prison you have placed yourself in are in your hands. Longing or hoping that you can trust someone to see who you really are does not work. You have to take immediate action if you want to be free.
Make up your mind, “I’m tired of being a Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde.” Tired of wearing a mask. Tired of the red carpet façade. Tired of looking in a mirror and reminding yourself, don’t let others see the real you. When we feel we must conceal our real selves, we are usually stressed to the max all of the time.
Now is the time to finally stop running from your past. Stop hiding from the circumstances and people that caused you to go into a shell in the first place. It’s time for you to make the decision, “I’m going to be me!"
