Which Face is Yours in Japanese Three Faces?
The world is an interesting and beautiful place. I sometimes wonder how we live in this world. The most of us live portraying different faces. Some are bound to circumstances and are coerced show their masked face. While others use it deceive people. This post is about Japanese Three Faces. I don’t remember where I read it. But it seems worth a read, thus sharing with you.
The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face:
You show this face to the world. This is the face people see. Most of us wear it for our own good and world. The world doesn’t know either your strengths or weaknesses.
The second face:
You show this face to your close friends and your family. This is the face your friends and family see. Most of our life secrets are known to close associates and family.
The third face:
You will never show this face to anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are. The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.
You need to understand who you truly are. Not what the world thinks of you or what you think about yourself but what you truly are. You have to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Once you understand who you really are and what you truly want you can improve yourself by working towards becoming what you truly want to become.
