Not a anti-mask story.

I stopped Wearing It!

by lauralumummu

Sentence Contest Winner 

I didn't wear the mask. I felt so vulnerable, my true feelings showed on my face. I had to tell someone or I might burst. Having built a protective wall around my heart, this wasn't easy. The hurt and anger were so evident on my face. Being transparent was agony. I told them everything - the whole painful truth.
No one believed me! These people were my closest confidants, but their eyes were staring at me in such a judgemental way. "You are such a Drama Queen," they said.
Much later I forgave him! Forgiving them for not believing me was much more difficult. I was just a young girl when it happened - why would I lie?
