Why is it sometimes easier to talk to a complete stranger than someone who you know really well?
Because they have little expectations from you (beyond first impressions).
Because they don’t know you and don’t know what you are going through.
This can be relieving and sometimes exhilarating when you want to try to step out of your normal shoes and be someone different for a change.
When people know you, truly know you, they see who you are, who’ve you’ve been, and who you want to be.
That can be wonderful because you support each other and help each other on your respective journey.
But it can also be limiting because they define you and picture you a certain way at a certain time. Your the guy that did/likes X. Or you’re the Z girl.
But that’s just a moment. You define who you are, by your actions and your words.
