UnRead Quote: Adultery

“After a certain age, we put on a mask of confidence and certainty. In time, that mask
gets stuck to our face and we can’t remove it.
As children, we learn that if we cry we’ll receive affection, that if we show we’re sad,
we’ll be consoled. If we can’t get what we want with a smile, then we can surely do so
with our tears.
But we no longer cry, except in the bathroom when no one is listening. Nor do we
smile at anyone other than our children. We don’t show our feelings because people
might think we’re vulnerable and take advantage of us.”

      – Paulo Coelho, Adultery
