There are bits if me opening up that have been closed my whole life. It’s scary, but somehow it feels like the path I need to walk. I am noticing people, letting them in. Tentative me. So many hurts before me. I am noticing things, but I am terribly nervous about this whole “Open” thing.

Why do I think so much about people I might never truly know for certain?

Will they see me as awkward? I am awkward. Awkward but sincere.

  1. This is something I can definitely identify with, though I am on the opposite side of the boat at the moment. Spent my whole life feeling this and hating my openness, or rather the vulnerability it brings. Beautifully written. 🙂
