emotions

December 19, 2008

I was talking with a friend about a week ago, and she turned to me and said, “you know, sometimes you are just so hard to read.” I really enjoy it when a friend is close enough to call me out on something. I have been thinking about why I can be “hard to read” lately.

I think there are several reasons why a person can become like that. For me, I grew up wearing every single emotion on my sleeve. It was easy to tell if I was happy, angry, content, annoyed, dissatisfied, telling the truth, or trying to tell a lie. Over time, wearing those emotions became a way that people could easily take advantage of me… and they did. Its crazy how this world works, it really is a kill or be killed, survival of the fittest world. I found if a hid my emotions it was easier for me to get by from day to day. A downside to doing this is that I tend to bottle up those emotions that I hide every day… and everyone knows that’s not good. So that’s something that I continually work on because I am such a non-confrontational person. 

Anyways.. Update on life: next week is the christmas production, and christmas itself so that should be fun. Fingers are still crossed for the new year.. We’ll see what it holds for me.
