Have You Been Hiding Behind a Mask?

Often, we are afraid to show everyone who we truly are. We choose to go with the norm and try to act like everyone else because of fear of being judged. But, what if you’re really different?

In the movie, Robert would instead save the world than live like an average person every day because that’s just not his nature! When he was called for a mission to save the world, that’s when he felt alive again. Because of it, his family was also led to the kind of life that’s meant for them—being superheroes!

The Incredibles has shown us that being unique isn’t a bad thing. If you let your true self show, life would become easier, and every day would be something to look forward to. This might even impact someone else’s life positively!

More than that, being true to who you are makes life more purposeful. How can it not when you know that your every move and word will lead you to become the person you ought to be?

Never compromise your beliefs and values for anything. If society thinks you’re different or unique, don’t try to conform. Because most of the time, it means you’re made for something greater!
