This whole article is about showing up, but honestly I don’t like putting myself out there, I don’t like to take the mask off. One day I would like to be able to show up, but I am guarded and don’t want people knowing my emotions. Taking off the mask is how I would like to show up, but I am not used to that, so I still have the mask on. I am more of an off to the side type of girl, I don’t like being in the center, I don’t want to show up. Showing up for me means seeking things that I don’t have, but I don’t know if I want them.
