Here’s the mask you put over your face
Felicia C. Sullivan
1258

A touching piece, Felicia, full of insight and healthy (and healthful) doses of sarcasm.

The metaphor of how “concerned people” slap masks of their choosing and of their own (perhaps) unconscious needs back onto us rings especially true.

I suppose it’s common for many to struggle with labels imposed on them by others, but depressives face an especially rough road since we often are not afforded the presumption of individual agency.

Keep the flame on those steaks!
