Have you ever worn a Masculine Mask, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIn life, a lot of people wear masks.

We do it to give the impression that we want to show to the outside world, to protect ourselves, to hide our vulnerabilities…

At some point or another most people have worn a mask.

The trouble with masks is that we’re not always aware that we’re wearing them.

…and that’s certainly the case with masculine masks.

How can you not know that you’re wearing a masculine mask?

Well these days, so many women are wearing masculine masks that it seems ‘normal’.

It doesn’t occur to many women that there is something unusual about it, because they are so similar to all the women around them.

If everyone is wearing a mask, there’s nothing to worry about, right?

Not necessarily.

Just because a lot of women are wearing them, doesn’t mean they’re a good idea.

So what is a masculine mask?

Well like any other mask, a masculine mask covers up what’s underneath, and shows something different to the outside world.

It hides who you really are, and gives the appearance that you are something else.

So today I want to share with you a little more about masculine masks, why women wear them and how to remove them…

So are you wearing a masculine mask, or do you know someone else who is?

The trouble with masculine masks is that they hide who we are, and in doing so create a distance between us and everyone around us…including ourselves.  They are often so securely in place that we don’t really know ourselves, and they can create so many challenges, especially in the area of relationships.

The first step in being able to remove a masculine mask is realising that it’s there…and one of the simplest ways to do that is to look at the list of masculine traits, and the list of feminine traits, and then do two things.

The first is to identify whether you are more masculine or feminine at core, which you can do with the help of this video.

The second is to look at the list of masculine traits, and the list of feminine traits, and then ask yourself which of these do you actively use on a regular basis?  If you use more traits on the masculine list, but you identify with being more feminine at core, chances are you’re wearing a masculine mask…and vice versa.

Once you’re aware that it’s there, you can then begin to learn how to let it go.

Stay Fabulous,

    Claire,
    Thank you for a very interesting post & video!
    I attended a nearly all boys school for some years & also practise martial arts. With hindsight, I have worn my own masculine mask in these male dominated environments to be accepted & prove that I’m as good as the boys/men. I think it’s only now that I’m learning more to be myself & that I don’t need to be one of them 🙂
