Recently, one of my friends told me –
It takes more than courage to show your dark side
And it really got me into thinking.
How often do we reveal our true selves?
How often are we natural our self – laugh at silliest of jokes – ask absurd doubts – be curious about minor thing?
How often do we say exactly what we feel – without sugar coating it?
How often do we share our secrets?
How often do we get people with whom we can share our inner dark secrets?
It really is astonishing to see what all people can write in anonymity. Have a blog with a name that has no connection with you. Give in your confessions to arbit confession-pages on Facebook. Write in a magazine or column in a pet name.
Why do we keep our real identity in wraps? Why can we not just be our real selves?
Why do we hide our actual feelings and emotions behind some cheesy lies?
Are we scared? Do we fear judgement? Are we conscious? Are we insecure?
What is it that keeps our thoughts behind a locked door?
Who do we confide do?
Should we or should we not confess?
I am still pondering over these questions… You could help me figure out, maybe?
In near future (April end) I am writing a series of “un-posted letters” on my blog and inviting guest posts for the same.
The compilation of this would have letters you never posted…the ones you wrote/wanted to write to your mother/teacher/neighbor/boss/husband/friend/ex but did not.. There is no need for names, you can address them to “an inspiring soul” or “a long lost friend” or “love of my life”..
