Surface Area

What does being yourself even really mean. Who are we and what defines our definitive selves? 

I’m still not able to get past showing anything other than the superficial self. Even when I think I’m making an effort to share more than usual, I realize just how much of myself I haven’t. 

While there are so many layers to just one person and it’s unlikely to ever show people all of them, why is there so much fear in doing it.  Even if I put all the people I know in a room they wouldn’t be able to collectively add all the information they knew about me to really know… Me.  

Maybe I will exist and never meet someone who will ever truly know me. Maybe it’s not about letting someone else know who you really are as opposed to just knowing for yourself who you are. Maybe what’s below the surface is only meant for ourselves.
