February Journal Prompt

There are two aspects to our identity: the social self, and the real self. Often, we show to the world a version of ourselves that we deem presentable, one that has been groomed by our family and society since we were young. Meanwhile, inside, our real self lies unappreciated and sometimes even undiscovered.

Often we don't even realize there's another more authentic self lying quietly dormant​, waiting for someone to want to see it.

This month, take a few minutes and a few paragraph to descibe each of these selves. What do you present to the world as your social self? Describe your real self as if it were also allowed to walk around in the world.
