What is Masking Your Feelings Worksheet

In this technique, you will be taught to be resilient and ignore the negative things around you by imagining that you are wearing a mask. Imaginary masks hide your true feelings from people around you. Nobody will judge you as they can’t see you, so whenever you are confused or hurt and need time, just mask your feelings behind a mask. You can quickly learn to ignore and avoid the things that provoke you to react by simply hiding your feelings behind a mask. Don’t show your exact feelings. Hide them behind the mask. 

How will  Masking Your Feelings Worksheet help?

Using this imaginative mask as a cover-up for whatever you feel is a great coping skill to learn. Just imagine that you are wearing a mask and are not present there. Nobody can see you. Wear a mask to hide your feelings from other people; Masks don’t have to be real. Every time you ignore, avoid, or pretend to feel something that you don’t feel, you are wearing a mask.
