At Arms Length

Due to my way of thinking and how my mind seems to work when analysing those awkward or hard situations that arise in life, i tend to keep everyone at arms length, no-one truly knows me both inside and out, i feel as though there is no need for discussion upon an issue unless both parties find it relevant, me being the party that generally thinks the issue is irrelevant.

I find it hard to discuss concerns or personal hardships with others and so therefore find it difficult to allow anyone past that barrier. Is it for my own protection or is it for theirs? I find is amusing somewhat how i've never been able to answer this question.
