    Troublesome...

    It can be difficult to let someone in. Even if it’s only part way. Once inside I let them see all the things I hide away from what most see as me. There’s so many thoughts, emotions, raw pain, that I worry once unleashed it will overwhelm and wash them away.

    I feel that one's perspective on life is a huge factor in people's life outcomes. Pessimism and fear are obstacles. I want to be more optimistic and smile more :)
