Word for Wednesday (W4W) #58


Play along here.

This week’s word is:


As is the case with many people who live with depression, I wear a mask.
Unless I choose to let you see what’s happening inside, you could chat to me all day and never have a clue of the turmoil and despair that lies beneath my smile.

Today I am sitting the hair salon waiting for my stylist, (following strict instructions from the OH to get out of the house and be good to myself – I wanted to simply buy a box of hair colour from Tesco), and am dreading having to make small talk.

I am dreading having to plaster on a smile and pretend to be ‘normal’.

Today I do not feel I have the energy to wear my mask.

  1. We all wear masks, they are heavy and cumbersome and we would all be better off if we didn’t need them.
    But the world is full of people who make them necessary and has too few of those we can show our true face.
    At least we know they are masks, some forget and become their masks.

  2. We all wear masks. I wore a mask for so long I forgot who and what I was underneath the mask, and when I finally unmasked myself I didn’t recognize the person staring back at me in the mirror.

  3. Sorry you’re so low, love. How did the haircut go? Did it make you feel brighter? I hate small talk in hairdressers, probably why I go so rarely. Though I’ve got quite good at putting on a show, slipping on the amiable mask. Hope the sun is shining for you – flowers will soon be in bloom in your garden, the bees will venture out, and all of it will feed your soul.
    Much love X
