Forthcoming???

How forthcoming are you to the people in your life? Do you have secrets? Are there things about you that you would be embarrassed about if they were exposed?

I really liked what Swami had to say about lying being the result of fear.

For example, nobody in my life knows that I post here and I would be very afraid for family members to find out. They would just see me different.

As I have said before, I have no fear. I live my life as if it is written on my sleeve. I have been told that this is a bad way to be, because people may take advantage of me, or make opinions of me, but I don't care. I would prefer to be liked by a few, even though it hurts my feelings to not be liked, than to be liked by a great many.

Truth is, I can't help it. I am just totally honest about myself and who I am and what I believe. I just wish people accepted me for how I am.

That is something I strive for, and I achieve most of the time. There are some things though, that I do not volunteer. I know why I am reserved about certain issues. I am afraid that I cannot defend my actions. I realize that I should not care, but I do.

I wish I was more like that, Ed.

I say too much, and it is interpreted wrongly. I say too much, and people take advantage.

It is a good thing to find a balance. I haven't learned where the balance is, yet. I may never learn.

I had an opportunity to go to dinner the other night, with another attorney and his wife. He wants me to run his law practice while he is in Iraq. (Selling arms???)

I was myself. Very open, discussed my beliefs, etc. I wish I could have held back, because usually, when I am "open", I get in trouble. I get these "troubled" glances. (lol)

On this rare occasion, they thought I was charming. I was astounded to get this response, because it is very rare.

For the most part, I don't think people can handle honesty. If we don't stoop to the "norm", we are suspect. If we are suspect, we can't be normal.

I think we have to be careful with whom we share our selves. I may be "myself", but that might not be a good thing.

But then again, that depends on whom we are trying to impress in this world. In a way, I've always been a rebel. I may not break laws ( actually, I do), but I "dance to my own drummer". Whatever.
