Enough is Enough: I’m Reclaiming Myself!

By Dr. Yanina Gomez, Mindset/Emotional Wellness Expert

We all want to feel loved, appreciated and respected. Some people fill this need through effort, investing time in healthy relationships, caring for others and giving back. Others, think that they have to pretend to be someone else to earn it.

They think that, if they’re themselves and show their true colors, they will not be able to fulfill these basic needs. In their effort to be loved, accepted and respected, they find themselves constantly trying to impress others or simply surround themselves with the wrong people.

Sometimes, in our effort to be accepted by certain people, we begin to wear masks.


I’m independent mask

I know it all mask

I’m crushing you mask

I’m better than you mask

I’m fun to hang out with mask

I’m very successful mask

My reputation precedes me mask, and the list goes on.

As a result, we find ourselves pretending to be someone we are not.
Pretending to be who you aren’t to be accepted by others is a very tedious, stressful and tiring thing to do. You spend so much energy faking it that, at the end of the day, you forget who you REALLY are. As you keep wearing these masks, you begin to lose your identity and your spark. Your light begins to extinguish, slowly but surely. When you deny yourself of your TRUE self, you’re welcoming frustration, anxiety and sadness to your soul. Just like dams suppress the natural flow of water in rivers, you’re suppressing your flow and disturbing your natural order.

Why are you adding unnecessary stress to your life? Why do you want that relationship so bad that you’re willing to lose your TRUE identity? Is it REALLY worth it? Do you really need to continue pretending to be who you are not? What will happen when you lose track of which mask you’re wearing with who?

TODAY, is THE day to FREE yourself from these lies.

RESUME LIVING! Give yourself permission to stop wearing these masks, actively embrace your Self and live a fulfilling life!

What is ONE thing you’re very proud of?
