I loved Halloween when I was younger. Dressing up as my favorite superhero, fairy tale princess, or whomever I wanted to be for the day was so exciting. I would also get lots of candy for dressing up. What an extraordinary day Halloween was. Wearing a costume and a mask was fun. It allowed me to become someone I was not – to take on the characteristics of a superhero or a princess. The adult me finds the concept of wearing masks complicated. Do I put on masks or take on different personas when I deal with different people – parents as opposed to friends, friends as opposed to colleagues, and colleagues as opposed to employers? Do I conceal my true identity with these masks, or am I becoming who I want to be when acting? Is there something I am seeking to become that lies in these different personas? Perhaps they all are me and I simply relate to people differently when in different contexts. I know for certain that I sometimes put on masks when I am trying to hide my feelings. Perhaps the answer I seek is simply in the acknowledgement of my awareness.
