The Man With An Iron Mask

The-Avengers-2-Ultron-Captain-America-Iron-Man-Official

Steve Rogers: Big man in a suit of armour. Take that off, what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.

Tony Stark knows exactly who he is even without the iron suit. He does not even need to put it on himself these days.

But… how many of us really know who we are when we take off our public facade?

If your professional titles are taken away, if your academic qualifications are rendered useless, if your good name is tarnished, if you lose all the money in your bank, are you still you? Are you only defined by those things or is there a real “you” behind all that? If there is, who are “you”?

The “you” with all your insecurities, your vulnerabilities, your shortcomings, your fears. The “you” who is truly authentic in character, sincere in expressions. The “you” who is void of all pretensions, pride and fabrications…

Will I ever know you?
