Have you ever faced this dichotomy? I face it all the time. There is a part of me that tends towards unabashed honesty, and a second part that is intensely private. I find myself mortified by both extremes and am constantly dealing with one or the other. It is difficult to find middle ground. It feels as though if I am going to say something, it tends to be confessional and unguarded, but more often I say nothing. It makes it difficult to communicate and interact in the world of people.
