Hiding the Pain

So many people try to hide their pain, pretending that if they don't talk about their worries and fears then they don't really exist. There are people who smile on the outside, making light and carefree conversations to prevent their intimate emotions from being exposed. Their personal doubts and insecurities travel uninvited across their minds, haunting them in the daylight and tormenting them in the night. It is a terrible burden to bear to always question yourself and feel as if no one understands you. Let your self-doubts vanish into the shadows; show your true spirit to everyone you meet. All people must travel through life not as one alone, but as a caravan of people who will each experience their own set of circumstances. Your life is everything that encircles you, and it's important not to judge yourself critically but to understand yourself, not to restrict your emotions but to express them, not to limit yourself but to search out every new horizon. There are too many people trying to be somebody else. Isn't it time to be who you are, and isn't it time to feel good about yourself?
