It's amazing how far we'll go to hide our true selves from the world.

Perhaps it's because we don't want people to know how much they really mean to us.

Which is funny because the truth is, we would do anything for them.

We traveling incredible distances, risk our lives, even fight of monsters.

But I suppose it can be scary to admit you need people.

People might see that as a weakness, a liability.

After all, what greater pain is there then losing someone you love.

Or worse, finding out someone you love has left you behind.

I guess that's why we feel the need to hide away and protect ourselves.

So we put on a mask.

It's not hard to understand why.

What's hard is knowing that sometimes...

The mask is who you really are.
