For some people it’s easier to express their feelings for people they aren’t close to. They can look at a hurt child and feel sympathy and concern and take care of this stranger but if their own child is hurt they are more likely to pat the kid on the head and say “Come on, it doesn’t hurt that much, go play.” I know these statements are true so I started thinking about why.
It is safer to show weakness to someone who can not really hurt you. If it is someone you care deeply about they are then able to see the chinks in your armor and have the ability to wound you.
If you love someone unconditionally with all of your heart and soul and they are hurt you might not be able to cope, you must be the tough one to give them someone to lean on.
If you let the world see how much you care about someone then something will happen to that person and you will lose them. It is just the way life works.
As a person gets to know you, over time they will start to see your faults. The more open and honest you are with them the less they will like you. It is better to remain aloof and closed off.
I think that it really all comes down to safety and trust.
I’m sure for many months random pictures from vacation will show up on here.
