i've discovered lately that i have a method for intimacy.
for a few people, i share certain stories from my life, and with others, i share still other stories.
the problem here is that no one is getting a complete picture of who i am. so i stay wrapped safe in my cocoon of distance, opening up enough so they feel informed, but never allowing them to know quite everything. there is less danger in getting hurt when you do this.
God likes to break my bad habits.
