Behind the Mask – Alexandra Spargo
Crying was normal for me, feeling vulnerable, lost, worthless, like a suffocating mask.
Forced confinement during the pandemic was a time of deep focus and introspection for many, but the isolation didn’t feel different to my everyday life.
We all wear some kind of a mask, a duality in all of us.
The face we show others and the face we hide can be contrast with our mental interior.
Removing our mask reveals who we truly are, transforming our appearance and character to our existence.
