What does underneath mean?

Underneath means below the surface, to be hid under something; under a disguise, to be distorted, altered, changed, falsified, perverted, twisted, misrepresented.

What's underneath your mask? What are you hiding?  Who are you hiding from?

The purpose of sharing this topic is to assist with the healing and forgiveness process on both sides of male/female relationships because too many children are suffering because mom and dad got issues; mom and dad are wearing a mask, teaching their children how to conceal, to hide their true feelings inside.

When it comes down to broken homes, whether it is divorce, domestic violence, drugs, alcohol, etc, one thing is true, the shattered pieces (which represents every child that has or is experiencing rejection, fear of abandonment, low self- esteem and all that comes along with it because of their missing parent) that are forced and taught to wear a mask of deception at a young age... that robs them of their true identity and their ability to speak the truth in love because they are taught by what they see. 

They see the truth but are taught to believe a lie.
