Breathless

What's in my head

The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.

Maybe we’re afraid of being happy, because when we’re happy we’re vulnerable. Because happiness is dangerous… it’s toxic. It elevates you to heights you’ve never climbed before. It lifts you higher and higher. Blind. Senseless. You feel nothing but beauty. You will get caught up in the clouds, and see nothing but the sun. But then it will start to rain and you’ll slip back down. And that fall will hurt. The beauty will be replaced by pain and climbing back up will seem almost impossible. Maybe remaining down below eliminates the risk of falling, and maybe that’s why we’re scared to death of happiness.
