It always happens when I least expect it. I think I'm on top of it all, but then something happens and the mask falls away and it's revealed to all that everything is not ok. I'm surprised to discover that I had been wearing a mask, so gradual had been the hiding, but in that moment it is obvious and I am bewildered by how un-self-aware I can be. I always think of myself as a terrible liar, but perhaps the only person I can lie to is myself.
