right along

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.

That made me think, do we really never get to show our third face? What if somewhere in the world, there is this one person who can see our third, true face. And what seems even more impossible, this person loves us for who we really are.
I have always found it extremely interesting to look through all these layers, people wear, finding their real self. I believe that if we have put enough efforts to fully get to know someone, we would never discover that one is a bad person. This third face is always something far underneath, hidden so deep inside, that it can seem cryptic, obscure or dark even. But I see it as a full understanding of one’s humanity. I have cought myself many times on how after opening up and offering my absolute comprehesion to someone, I could not help it but falling in love . However not in a common sense of the expression. It would be more like having all this love right along and being able to evaluate it and expand it’s doing.
So thank You, for having courage to look through all of my masks, see me and love me, and showing me love.
