What masks do you wear?

Published on: 9th December, 2020

What masks do you wear to protect yourself from rejection?

Let's just be very honest and acknowledge that every human being has experienced that deep fear of "not enough" or "I am unlovable". After doing our own journaling about the masks we wear and the different techniques we employ to protect ourselves and our egos, we sit down to share this very vulnerable message with each other. Some of the masks we discuss are "You can't hurt me!" "You can't phase me!" and "I can do it all!".

Have you eve felt the sting of rejection? Have you ever taken the time to really think through your personal behaviors that help you from feeling that sting of rejection again? In this episode we talk about projection, self protection, ego, and victimhood. No need to feel ashamed, as human beings we are all trying to protect ourselves from feeling loneliness and pain. Do you have the courage to ask yourself what masks you are wearing?

This podcast is a collection of conversations. Some of them are interviews, some are guided meditations and breath work, and a lot of them are just the two of us sitting down at the table to talk through our experiences and all the things we’ve learned. We discuss big and heavy topics like trauma, insecurities, body image. And although we might be discussing a weighty issue one moment, we will be laughing the next. We are not experts, we are not perfectionists. We are just two women on our own journey oh yeah, and we’re totally related! We hope to start the conversation with you and share resources, and we hope that you can totally relate too.
