I have made this today. Following on from yesterday's post about depression, I found this quote quite apt. I think depression and insecurity go hand in hand and we do (I know I do) sometimes wear a different mask, or in this pictures case, a head, for differing occasions.
For years I used to do the circuit of entertaining and singing. You would think I had loads of confidence to do that, but no. I'd like to get there early to set up before anyone was there, then I would be ready with my back to the wall for people to come in and greet me, never the other way round. I hated going into a room full of strangers all staring at you.
Now I'm going to share with you my secret. two little words........AS IF......
It involves just a little bit of acting but nobody knows that. You walk in to a room and act 'as if' you are walking down a red carpeted catwalk. You are a model wearing the latest fashions, beautiful shoes and jewels.
You act 'as if' you are as brave as a lion, even though your heart may be doing a clog dance.
Believe me, it works. I've been doing it so long it's second nature to me. But now at my age I don't really need it as I lead a completely different lifestyle. I'm now a stay at home gal!
And I'm so glad I don't have to act 'as if' when I'm talking to you, all my wonderful blogland friends.
God Bless you all,
Love and Hugs
