Masquerade

6 Jul

Lots of people continually come in and out of our lives. We build many different types of relationships and connections with them, and when they’re positive, our interactions may be helpful and enjoyable. We may have some very close friends with whom we share our most private dreams and desires. If they care for us and value our friendship, they will be trustworthy and loyal. But sometimes things aren’t exactly as they seem, and we may have an experience where someone we thought was a true friend turns out to be something else. They may manipulate us into believing they are on our side and support us, and we may believe they are looking out for our best interests. We may trust them with confidential information and feel we can rely on them. If we care for them, they may use it to their advantage. Truth always rises and although we may be fooled for a while, nobody can keep up a masquerade forever. If they are unworthy of our friendship, in time, however long that takes, their true colors will surface, and we will see them for what they really are. Once the charade is exposed, we may suffer great pains of betrayal and disappointment. How could we ever have believed them? How did we fall for the lies? We are never to blame when others abuse us. It’s good to trust those around us and give them the benefit of every doubt, but we never have to stay in any relationship that isn’t working, no matter how long it’s been going on or what others may advise. We deserve complete happiness and can do what is needed to correct anything in our lives. We can’t change the past, but we are in control of where we go next, and can decide how we’ll proceed. Our lives are ours to design. If something isn’t working, we can change direction and start again. There isn’t anything we can’t do. By trusting ourselves, and moving toward the goals we most desire, we will reach success.

Physical beauty can be a great deceiver. If we’re attracted to someone because of their amazing outward appearance, we may gloss over signals that they aren’t exactly as they seem. But infatuation cannot last indefinitely. As time passes, cracks will appear in the veneer and we’ll be able to see things more clearly. External beauty has nothing to do with internal valor. We are intelligent and wise, and can see beyond the packaging to what lies beneath. We can trust ourselves to build good, strong relationships with others that will bring light and blessing into our lives.

If we’re in a relationship with someone who says all the right things, we may believe in them and wish to be close to them. Words are easy but without follow through, they mean nothing. We can say anything, but if we don’t show how we feel through our actions and decisions, the words we say will mean nothing. It’s like putting a fresh coat of shiny new paint on a ruined car. It looks good from the outside and we may be fooled in the beginning but when we try to move forward, the truth will be easy to see. We are intelligent, and can trust ourselves to uncover what isn’t real. True happiness will always be there for us, and with determination and focus, we will find it.

Today if you’ve discovered you have been manipulated into believing a lie, be confident. Everyone gets fooled sometimes. You are more intelligent and wise than you imagine. Trust yourself and step forward. There is greatness in you and nothing can keep you from every success. Stand strong and be wise. You will prevail.
