Fifty Three

For the second time in the past month, I wrote something long and then decided it wouldn't do to put it up publicly.

It's ironic because this time, part of what I wrote was about how we prevent each other from fully understanding us because vulnerability is a scary thing. A fear of being perceived in a negative light, and a justified fear I might say because it really does happen.

"...we shield our thoughts, choose our words, try to guess at intentions, put up walls...".

So alas, we continue to live in a world where we yearn to be understood but yet prevent others from understanding us.
