Like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in the popular Hyde and Jekyll story, many people are trapped (either willingly or unwillingly) in a life of double identity. While it may not be as serious as the Hyde and Jekyll story, a life of double identity is a miserable and tortuous life. The victims are usually torn between guilty conscience and stoicism. They feel remorseful after switching back to their Jekyll (the good) identity, but while in Hyde’s mode they are soulless and incapable of feeling any sense of guilt.
When you live a dirty, shameful and despicable life in secret, and present a different look in public, you are living a double life. We should strive to have and maintain same identity in private and public, and it should be an enviable identity. The sad part is that the private life always get exposed, no matter how much we try to hide it, so why set a time bomb for yourself?
Be true to your conscience and to the public by maintaining a single identity. Many of the cases of divorce, abortion, blackmail, kidnapping, murder, witchcraft, sorcery and other evil vices we see in our world today, are the manifestations of a life of double identity. No matter how highly placed you are, someday your private life will be thrown open to the public glare. Change today.
God bless us all.
