Is this sentense natural English?


"All of us use something as a cover for our true self when we live in a group of people."

I translated this for express human who is the only animal that wares clothes.

Would anyone check if this is natural English??

I agree with Davi -- the rest of the sentence is based on the subject "us" being plural, so "selves" works better than "self".!

Yes, this sentence is ok, just a question that came to my mind. I think on this context the "self" goes to plural "selves", because you are using the possessive pronoun "our", so it would look like this:
"All of us use something as a cover for our true selves when we live in a group of people."
