Thoughts from a bed | Same bed, different topic
<div class=text-justify>Ok it's not like I'm always lying down.

#

It's just a lazy coincidence that my I posted [two times from bed](https://steemit.com/freewrite/@anomadsoul/thoughts-from-a-bed) this week. A few days ago I was watching a movie, eating pizza and chilling with my k9 force; this time I woke up at 7 am because my feet were aching and because somehow I've been full of energy for the past few days.</div>

That somehow is not a mystery. A month ago I began taking some pills that are fighting a chemical unbalance in my body and for the first time in a little more than a decade - yeah, it took me that long to actually go to the doctor and get diagnosed and then treated - I'm not completely fatigued all the time and my body is asking me to do excercise and be active.

Don't get me wrong, during the past decade and mainly during the past two years that I spent mostly traveling on a budget, I was active and out there exploring but after a few hours out, I always felt like I was carrying a 50kg extra weight and an overwhelming effort to keep exploring, I still did it but now you know how it felt. Now that I got diagnosed it all makes sense. And to think that I thought it was normal to get your battery drained so easily and rapidly everyday.

Well, of course I was meant to wake up with a feet ache, I [walked for 5 hours and 20km yesterday](https://steemit.com/freewrite/@anomadsoul/thoughts-from-a-lab-waiting-room) instead of taking a 9 dollar Uber haha. But I did it because my body was asking me for exercise, the same excercise just a few months ago I ran away from doing, but did anyway because I knew it was good for me. I mean I'm not a rookie, I'm well aware that Everytime we force our body, we pay the consequences the morning after and I was expecting to be soar and full of pain at least in my lower body.

Well well, I was so wrong it's practically a miracle. Of course I'm hurting but I'm not nearly as bad as I was expecting to be and walking to the bathroom it's not as hard as one would think. I mean, I walked for 5 hours when the previous few days I walked for maybe 20-30 minutes. 

In fact I feel great and I want to go out and excercise more once the cold goes away and the Mexican sun reveals itself again. But for now, I'll reveal to you how my Mexican room looks like every morning. This is the look from my bed.

### <center>That reminds me about Revelations</center>

#

How many times do we reveal to the Blockchain exactly who we are? What percentage of your true self do you actually let people read or see here on Steem?

Everyone - and I mean EVERYONE - Browses and engages the chain with a bit of a mask. The social media based on the steem Blockchain provides a platform where news beginnings take place. We can *sell ourselves however we want* and nobody will judge us because let's face it, it's highly probable that nobody has even met us in real life. 

It's like moving to a new city, there are countless behavioral options you can take. 

I've spoken about this topic with some Steem people and they all agree on this one: On Steem - like in any other social media platform - we only show the side of us we want people to see. Hell, there's even people who sell a persona or character totally different to what they are in real life.

All of that is great, it's the whole side of anonimity and privacy the Steem chain based platforms provide. We are who we want to be no matter who we are behind the keyboard.

My only concern is, if 95% of your time spent on chain or chain related (Discord or Steem chat) you wear a mask wherever you go, eventually that mask is going to drop for a second - or you're going to slip and show your true self - and you'll show people what you're really looking for here or why do you act the way you act. So my only advice is *be real and true to yourself, don't pretend to be something or someone you're not, it all ends up revealing itself in time*.

When I'm on the chain, I try to be as real and authentic to my true self as I am in *real life* but I also can't help to wear a bit of a mask sometimes, which is something I don't really like but I can't help. And you can't help it either, it's easy to try to act *as a better version of ourselves* when we are behind a keyboard.

Now, I'm not writing all of this thinking of one particular person or a specific situation, I just write where the freewrite style takes me, I listen to it.

My dogs just started to bark and fight each other. It's already 8 am and they're hungry. They get loud when they're hungry and they can't really tell the difference between a Saturday morning and a Tuesday, so I have to take my lazy ass - or should I say newly energized and fully driven ass? Oh yeah, sorry, let's not talk about my ass - out of bed and feed them. 

It's so funny, lately I've seen some memes on low reputation websites about how wolves evolved into what current dogs are now and I can't help but laugh out loud because let's face it, they're true on every sense.

I'm not citing sources because they're memes, they're property of our society and modern culture owns them now. If you disagree with me, ask all the meme websites. Once you're/make/become a meme, you're property of mainstream society. If you still don't believe me, ask all those people who became memes. Sorry, not really sorry.

 ![image](https://img.esteem.ws/zv5ggbxbzr.jpg)

 ![image](https://img.esteem.ws/8nv77zktkk.jpg)

What reminded me these memes is that I said "I have to feed my dogs", as if two full size big killing machines should need being fed instead of riding to the horizon and hunting some horses or mammoths. But the truth is they need us, after thousands of years we genetically engineered them to be dependent of us.

So yeah, I gotta go, I need to feed my dogs. Smell ya later. (Got it? Cause dogs smell each other's ass when they meet again. Bad pun? Ok :( ).

The bed will affect the state of our body when we wake up in the morning. Obviously the bed can affect one's health. For someone who has a spinal pain, a bed that is too soft can aggravate his back pain. I prefer to use a bed that is not too soft for the health of my back.

I enjoyed your nice easy free flowing post.  So true, on the keyboard people can be anything they want.  I prefer to write fiction stories though, not create fiction about me or who I am.  It's too much work, lol, and besides I guess I'm pretty happy with who I am, with faults in tact.  It sounds like you are much the same.  And your K9 posse look like a  couple of sweethearts!  Those memes were hilarious.

The interesting thing about wearing a mask is when you start taking it off, you may discover that what you'd thought of as your true face turns out to be just another mask you've been wearing to hide from yourself! 
Here on the blockchain, where downvotes / flags come with debilitating consequences, people may want to hide their troll faces. But maybe that troll-face is also a mask they have to put on to hide their insecurities... 
Not sure where I'm going with this, but I guess similarly to the wolf becoming a pug over time, if we keep wearing a mask for long (whether it's an over-mask for the outside world, or an under-mask for ourselves), it may become harder to take it off, until it could get to stick for good, meaning becoming part of our character. So the best approach would be having a number of masks handy, which we change on a regular basis, while staying aware of what's underneath.

I have always approached social media trying to show the real me but you are correct in saying that there is always some sort of mask... Nobody ever wants to put out there their vulnerabilities which is why many take this approach.  However, it doesn’t always mean it is all fake as someone aboved mention, we may even finds things about us here that we have never shared face to face.  It is a world of possibilities here!

I think that not only online, but also in real life, we show people only the side of us that we want them to see. It may be easier to hide some things online, where we don't interact as much with people, but no one else knows all of us as well as we do.

Also, while reading about acting like our better selves, it got me thinking... if we act like our better selves all the time, we eventually become our better selves, right?

Great post.  I think you make some good points.  There are a lot of people that are here to simply make money and they think it is a bad thing to say that is their motivation.  I think that is okay if that is what motivates you.  That is the main reason I joined Steemit.  Has it evolved into something beyond that since I joined?  Yes, of course it has.  That doesn't change the fact that at the end of the day I think we all way to say we have gained something from our time here.  Be it new friends, a new business, or some small amount of money.

I enjoyed reading your post! As for wearing masks online, I believe I do it often when I write my poems. I try to write them in as much of a positive light as I can, even when I’m not feeling that positive. This is because I want to set an example for my readers.
