Don’t be too quick to judge
Get off your high horse!
My, my! Someone’s snappy today..
What a snob!
All words/phrases used to describe me.. Why am I these things? Because I don’t want you to see the real me. Just another human being that I am – I find it easier to judge than to trust and easier to accuse than to include. I want to be special – set apart from and above other people… so I build – responses, behaviours, a persona – so that the real me is buried so deep inside that you can’t see. Because if you saw me, you’d realise that I am confused, emotional, prone to making mistakes and afraid of the unknown. Then I’d be vulnerable to you. Because I am afraid that you won’t love me any more.. I’m not special enough, you see.
But now I want to be exposed. Be open to being all that I really am. If you leave, you’d leave the real thing. And if you stay, you’ll get the real thing – not the perfect illusion.
