Are you the person you think people know? Or are you someone completely different? Do you think you know who you are?
If so, do you like who you think you are?
My experience is that I rarely am who people think I am. And I rarely know who they really think I am.
People are difficult to read because we really don’t want people we don’t know well to know us. Which means we never get to know them well either.
And even more than that – we don’t want people we do know well to know us too well.
So we spend our lives hiding from ourselves – therefore we rarely get to know ourselves.
