My Mask

“I know my mask protects me. Without it I am exposed and much more vulnerable. I am starting to notice just how confining it is, stunting my growth and happiness. The longer I keep the mask on, the harder it is to take off.

I wanted to make something tangible to illustrate just how the tension is starting to grow between my instinct to protect myself and my desire to be myself. What was a great temporary solution is fast becoming a liability, especially as I start to embrace parts of me that I’ve seen as flaws since childhood.”
