Embracing the lighter side

Very rarely are things the way they seem

We all just see the husk presented to us. Rarely do we get a glimpse behind the mask that every single one of us is wearing. What goes on behind the closed doors is a secret. Then again there are other people that do not have the balls to tell you things to your face. It is all this ridiculous cat and mouse game, but what do we have to lose if we drop the mask? Why are we so scared of showing people the reality, not just this fabricated picture?

These last weeks have been all about people hiding. Hiding their story, their emotions and/or the truth. Trying to help people through their own trials that are so obviously present just below the surface.

What is the worst thing that can come from exposing yourself?

I do not understand why we care so much about what people think of us. As the ones that are dearest and nearest will nearly always forgive anything. Why do we worry or care so much about the others we could not care less about? We all have our rucksack which we even hide from our loved ones.


I was very often under the impression I was massively screwed up when it came to relationships. Having friends and family share their very private relationship issues with me, I have come to realise I am a walk in the parc. Not that I am gloating. I am just really glad that I can finally see things for what they are and not blame myself for the screwed up behaviour of others.

With certain people, their own demons slay them rather than the other way round. Them becoming trapped in their own unhappiness but not being able to find the way out. Worst is depending on how close I stand I can get dragged into it but I have learned to manoeuvre this river and see the riptides before they hit the boat. Learning and reflecting on my own behaviour, relationships of mine or others has taught me a lot about what I want and how to manoeuvre obstacles. Let’s face it there will never be a 100% solution or prevention but just being able to recognise that I am not the trainwreck I thought I was and being able to handle situations more adequately gives me hope for the future.

Let’s face it there will never be a 100% solution or prevention but just being able to recongnise that I am not the trainwreck I thought I was and being able to handle situations more adequatly gives me hope for the future.

So with a bounce in my step, open eyes and heart there I go……

#mentalhealthambassador All the ruminations on this page belong to moi. I am not a certified psychologist or psychiatrist. It is not my intention to force my opinions, ideals, ideas upon you or tell you what to do. This page was created to inspire you, enforce you and hopefully guide you. I am a on a quest to self-fullfillment for a happy, healthy, sporty and adventurous life. By being curious and open-minded I encounter myself, others and the world that sorrounds me in ever changing ways that inspire me. I would like to help reduce the stigma still clinging to mental health. The vessel I choose to transport my message is this blog. This Blog is love and a lot of soul. It is a journey through my realm. A soul striptease. My focus lies on a healthy lifestyle and the awareness movement. To see the change be the change!
