Day 59 – Behind your door

What’s behind the door? Behind your facade? Behind the Christmas ribbons and colourful decorations? In the case of the picture I took yesterday it’s a Dutch candy store, but I am sure that behind most windows you won’t just find sweet stuff. People are just like decorated windows. Beautifully put together from the outside, a little less well together from the inside.

From how many people in your life do you only know from the outside? Do you really know what is going on deep inside someone’s mind? Do you know what keeps them awake at night? Why are the lights still burning if everyone else is asleep already? What happens on your phone when no one watches?

Secrets. Privacy. It’s something we value. Rightfully so, I don’t want the whole world to know that I am up to all the time. There are very few people who know what is going on in my life. Maybe my  life looks like a beautifully packed from the outside, but inside I am also confused and scared. I don’t always know what to do or which decision to make.

Maybe I am more like the building next door. In renovation. Work in progress.
