Daily Masks

Everyday meet people, mix with different group of people, converse with people. Known or not known to ourselves, each time we talk, it is a different mask we put on.

We may talk sweetly or politely to someone but inside us, we hate that person.

I found this quote by Sigmund Freud rather interesting.

"Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies,
quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love
and always have to mix love and hate."

Dogs are, comparatively the most loyal animal. If they know you, they love you. If you're a stranger, they will bark their lungs out at you. It doesn't matter if they are small in size or big in size. Once they love you, they will forever love you.

Although some times they may go through some unappreciated times maybe even neglected, but the moment you look back at them, they still love you. Pure love.

Humans, on the other hand, are different. If you're busy and somehow neglected them, they will remember for life (in some cases). There's not a natural forgiving spirit in human. We tend to question why, why, why. We question but we do not wait for an answer. We assume/presume the answer. Most of the time, for the worst. Negative thoughts.

Even dogs learn to accept new people, well, that is after a few sniffs.

Why can't a human accept new people that easily? We tend to be bias. We look too far away. Discriminative. We tend to stick to our group of "old buddies". It's hard, very hard, for a new person to penetrate that group of "old buddies".

Maybe it's time we learn a few lessons from man's best friend.

Always be loyal to our friends. "Bite" those who harm us. Separate our love from our hate. Learn to accept new people. Learn how to show pure love. Don't back stab!

Just be true to ourselves. Inner and outer. Inward and outward.
