Is integrally speaking a necessity. I have shed loads of old selves, reinvented myself. Shed layers and layers of skin. Peeled away at my soul to find the quintessence of my being and my problems but rarely do I let people in to see what is below the surface.
We all have these different facades which we have in place, depending on what kind of social interaction takes place the mask will change. Do we ever really know who is sitting in front of us? Do we sometimes get confused about who we are ourselves?
If your child, adult and parent are in tune, that I believe is when you are truly yourself as they are the parts that make you uniquely you.
Having been told that peeling away at the exterior was enjoyable and especially after revealing what lays beneath was a lovely compliment to receive. Having people question my single status based on my personality too. I have finally come to the point where I am in tune with myself and happy with the overall package that I am.
Despite all revelation is a feeling I am not quite sure where to place as it makes you vulnerable, susceptible to pain, which I have had enough in the last few years. On one side I long for depth but at the same time shy away of unveiling really all. Different people get to see different parts of me depending on how comfortable I am with you. Not letting people in is lonely but also leads to no serious connection, all stays shallow and without real depth.
Slowly I am learning that I need to take risks and accepting the fact that everything has a price it depends what you are willing to pay. Rather stay lonely but not mangled emotionally or let people in with the chance of getting hurt or disappointed.
If your child, adult and parent are intune I believe is when you are truly yourself as they are the parts that make you uniquely you.
