Learning When to Wear the Mask
We all have a mask we wear around people but do those in the adult entertainment have it easier or harder when it comes to judgment from certain friends or family members?
Some accept their loved ones going rogue and getting into a dangerous and frowned upon line of work and employment to meet certain means of living and sustaining their life how they see fit. In most circumstances, family, friends or anyone existent in their life write them off entirely without a second thought. These are normally the same friends, family and associates that would disown or write off their own blood or a friend if they came out and said they were gay, bi-sexual, transgender, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or held a different political opinion.
Stereotyping and judging people like this not only affects those taking new paths in their life and discovering who they are or what they want to do with their own life. It directly and indirectly affects everyone from growing in life and finding what they like or don't in fear of being ridiculed or judged.
Adult entertainers get to tear down the walls they have up by forcing themselves to finance a certain way of life. Unfortunately, they also have to keep their lives extremely private or take a crap shoot and try their luck. The bright side is that it will help weed through anyone that is for you no matter what or force you to abandon many of the people who said they would love you and be there for you forever.
You must evaluate what is and isn't important to you and how badly you want to choose your own path or let someone else tell you how to live your life. Personally, I would not recommend anyone living their life a total lie and being someone you are not to everyone closest to you. It is also important to understand some people risk their life pillars, ie: professional careers, living wills, future jobs, children or sick loved ones. If you wear a mask, like we all do, make sure you wear it for the right reasons and it doesn't directly affect you finding who you are or where you want to be in life.
