I’ve always had an issue with letting people get too close, too fast. Never allowing them to learn me, all of me, before I was calling them my “friend”. I was giving them the tour of my world without them having an understanding of why my world is the way it is, WHICH IS MY FAULT. I always felt like I had to let people in to keep them around when in fact a person that genuinely wants to stay around, will be around. I’ve been disappointed because I took criticism from those who don’t know or accept me wholeheartedly. Instead of me acknowledging that I was trying to change who I was to fit into their world. From now on people will have to be on the outside looking in until I feel otherwise. I don’t want to let my heart go against my better judgment anymore. People will believe what they want whether they know the real me or not.
