A Very Private Kind of Person
I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately for a variety of reasons, and I’m starting to learn a lot about myself. I’m kind of a very private person. If you met me, you wouldn’t think that, because I’ll talk to people (friends) just about anything. I’ll share what’s going on in my life, the good, the bad and the ugly. What I don’t talk about however, is how I actually feel. I keep that stuff held deep inside of me.
Remember the scene in Shrek between Shrek and Donkey?
Shrek: Ogres are like onions.
Donkey: They stink?
Shrek: Yes. No.
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry.
Donkey: Oh, you leave em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin’ little white hairs.
Shrek: NO. Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers.
That’s kind of what I mean. I have no problem showing a lot of surface, but there isn’t anybody who really knows what goes on beneath the surface. I do keep a lot to myself, because I really don’t believe that there are a lot of people who would understand, or care. It’s easier to be a very private kind of person and if not easier, it’s a heck of a lot safer. If you keep it all to yourself, nobody has the power to hurt you.
