Whenever I find myself caring about someone
, I feel the need to tell them my flaws. The more I value them, the more things I tell them.
I go into personality quirks, past mistakes, my big bag of issues
. Usually they receive this information
either in a big list, or I sit them down and just spew words.
The reason behind this is because I believe in letting people know what they are getting into. Good surprises and mysteries are fun
, but the bad ones can really suck.
There are some things we know we can, and can't deal with. I just want them to know what may exist. I fear being accused of trying to hide things
. I fear being walked away from by those I love and trust. I also respect someone enough to inform them of the whole truth. This method has it's setbacks, but I feel if someone is going to walk away from me because of one of my flaws.. I'd rather have it be before I really fall for them. It prevents being hurt
, just a tad.. on both sides.
Those who seem to think I am exaggerating, or that it doesn't matter I tend to walk away from. It shows they don't trust my perspective, or what I am saying.Those who listen
, and give me some feedback, and take what I say into consideration.. well those are the kind of people I try to surround myself with.
