Distancing yourself from others is so much easier than letting them get close. Allowing someone to see the real you that often lies dormant inside a shell of mistrust is terrifying. The shell is fragile, it contains us, encompasses our beliefs and values, fear and hope, faith and love, imperfection and insecurity. It preserves our sanity and the precious personality that is the epitome of who we are. It's the thought that one person has the power to fracture the delicate layer and reach the innermost recesses of our souls that frightens most of us into a lifetime of closing the world off. We do this without realising, we build careers, find love, start families and grow old without ever truly discovering divine peace with ourselves and the world. Something is always off kilter, we blame outside forces but the source is from within. Being yourself requires a complete sense of who you really are, without the harmony of mind, body and spirit this is not possible.
