Our Own Little Barriers And Layers

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I went to visit my mom – who’s on deployment – and had not much internet access.

I have a barrier to protect myself from the world. Or at least, I used to. A barrier is what you use to protect your emotions, one of my old friends told me.
There’s a lot of problems in the world that most of the time, most of us don’t want to see. A lot of times, people say things that hurt us mentally or emotionally. Inside a barrier, we could remained untouched.

Or so we liked to think.

Also, barriers could keep people from seeing the real you, just how layers work, too. If you’re someone like me, who has a lot of layers, then it’s awfully easy to be misunderstood, or thought to be a bad person when – in the inside – we’re really good people.

People, everybody, needs to stop looking at the most few outer layers. There are too many layers to count, and the outer ones aren’t who we really are.

  1. Strangely enough, this reminds me of Shrek….

    I think one of the worst parts about barriers is that once you’ve had one up for a while, it’s really hard to pull it down, even if you really want to. I still can’t seem to figure it out… I don’t want to hide who I am anymore. I want to be who I really am, but at this point, I’m not sure I even *know* who I really am.
