Topic: Crap I Don't Understand

People fascinate and confound me at times. We spend our days attempting to connect with the people that we meet all the while hiding pieces of ourselves from the world at large. Why do we do this? Are we afraid of what people might think of us if they see who we truly are? Is that what causes us to censor ourselves? Even our families don't really know more than what we show them - or more so they view us based on their own preconcieved notions of who we are.  It's almost as if we have these characters or roles that we play based on the situation we find ourselves in. Is that the best way to go about living our lives?

A friend of mine recently had a near death experience and all of a sudden I'm hearing from him a lot more than I used to. What does that mean? Is he trying to connect with me or with the person that he thinks that I am? And what priorities have shifted in his life that have caused the attempt at reconnection?

No one wants to be alone in life, but when it comes down to it, are we ever really not alone? How can we let people into our lives if we are reserving part of ourselves. Will acting in this manner keep us alone? Or is reserving part of ourselves what allows us to connect wtih others? How much of ourselves can we share before other people begin to judge so harshly that they become unaccepting?

Name: "Riley"

It appears that you and I have a lot of catching up to do.  Maybe we can sit down and chat over some nice mulled wine.
