We all wear masks…

I drew this for an Illustration Weekly competition.  The theme was ‘masks’ and I for one wear a mask most days.  Every time I am feeling sad, blue, weak, anxious or depressed I put on my happy mask.  People don’t want to know that you are sad, or that you have problems weighing on you that effect you emotionally.  People want you to be OK so they can get on with their day.  Not all people; some care and ask and genuinely want to help, but a lot just want you to pretend to be OK so they don’t have to ask you or take time out of their day.

Don’t wear the mask.  Wear your emotion.  If people care, they’ll try to help and make you feel better.  I care.  I try to help those who are struggling around me.
