Having ceased to amuse oneself with illusion, a person can get rid of the mask of this illusion.  The mask gave the person a form and imposed on him methods and properties of this mask.  Attempt not to obey the mask caused a feeling of guilt and pain in his chest.  Answer yourself – who am I... I am a mother, I am a wife, I am a citizen, I am a Christian, I am a good person, I am an honest person, I am a good daughter, I am a good granddaughter, I am a good friend.  Every single one of these masks puts obligations on you that need to be followed.  However, you can override the properties of the mask, more accurately defining what is also good and bad.  A man must be good.  When he's bad, his own Self starts to self-destruct, howling with pain and suffering.

Don't  judge  people  by  their  calm  expression  on  the  face  or  their  looks.  People  like  to  put  on  masks  and  the  more  experienced  a  person  is,  the  more  masks  this  person  has.  Behind  a  totally  calm  and  nice  face  a  real  psycho  or  an  utter  idiot  may  hide.  And  taking  into  account  that  there  are  no  normal  people  at  all,  then  the  nicer  and  more  normal  a  person  seems  to  be,  the  heavier  and  worse  this  person's  sins  will  seem  in  close  up.   

Anyway,  it's  better  to  be  careful  with  people  from  the  very  beginning  as  only  time  and  working  together  will  let  you  get  to  know  them  better.   

With  all  other  things  being  equal,  the  only  thing  that  matters  is  how  well  one  does  one's  job  and  on's  ability  to  engage  in  personalities. 

It's  rational  to  ignore  and  not  deal  with  people  who  like  to  engage  in  personalities.  Any  profit  or  money  gained  from  them  don't  matter  at  all.  There  are  many  perhaps  not  quite  normal  but  quite  sane  people  in  the  world.

There's  no  need  to  overestimate  people  or  consider  them  better  than  they  are.  Generally,  people  are  approximately  equal.  We  often  think  that  we're  special  or  not  like  others.  But  secretly  we  often  consider  ourselves  worse  than  others;  sillier,  weaker,  less  lucky  etc.  But  actually  thoughts  like  these  probably  torture  many  people  (regardless  of  their  age),  no  matter  how  successful,  strong  or  smart...   

In  essence,  any  person  may  get  the  following  thoughts  and  emotions  on  the  inside:  uncertainty,  doubts,  complexes,  permanent  lack  of  understanding  of  what  goes  on  and  what  to  do  next  or  how  to  live  in  general,  lack  of  self-belief. 

A  person  is  always  full  of  many  desires  most  of  which  won't  come  true.  As  a  rule,  no  matter  how  old  one  looks  on  the  outside,  on  the  inside  a  person  remains  the  same  little  young  gold  fish  swimming  in  a  huge  ocean  of  emotions  and  passions  that  overwhelm  human  soul.   

And  anything  on  the  outside  is  a  mask.  A  shell.  A  shield.

A loving person does not hurt a loved one because his love is false. Rather, the reason here is that next to your loved one you want to remove all your masks, you want to be loved as you are. And man, as you know, is a monster. Knowing that your love is monstrous hurts everyone.

There are, however, two more reasons.

Close people are so close to each other that their feelings about each other are tens of times more acute. Therefore, even the smallest rudeness is perceived as a hellish pain.

Often intimacy comes to such an extent that you begin to feel a partner part of yourself. And with yourself people usually talk without any constraints. Moreover, it is impossible to take offense at himself. So quite strange and it's a shame, when your "other half" all -??? takes offense. Why, why?
