The fear of a judgement, the impossibility to be accepted, the shame for one’s limits and imperfections are efficient destroyers of the possibility of being oneself. It occurs as a change in the subject, or an attempt to hide something in order to appear as the others want you to be.
In these situations the freedom of the identity is lost, the constriction of appearing as the world suggests overcomes. Where the origin of the masks lay?
This happens when one’s identity is weak and not completely shaped; a lack in the self-confidence leads the subject to follow stronger identities, trends or ideas.
