Wearing your heart on your sleeve…


How many of us have this quality? I think with social media it has either enhanced your capacity bear your feelings to the world or you feel intimidated and don’t like the idea of everyone knowing your every thought…

The way I see it, there are two types of people: those who share their emotions and those who don’t. Some people are a bit of  mystery and prefer to keep to themselves and they will tell you what they think you need to know. Then you get the ‘sharers’ and they don;t tend to hold back.. wait, we don’t tend to hold back. Us sharers will tell you everything and more. I wish I knew why sharers share and why other people can be on the total opposite side and prefer to keep to themselves, but I do not understand keeping everything bottled up. I think you should share your feelings and emotions to a certain degree though.

Sharers tend to make other people uncomfortable. I see it all the time and it is not some thing I am trying to do it is just an automatic response to someone who is easy to get to know and opens up more easily than others. I don’t think it is because we are trusting of others I just think it is in a sharers nature to try to empathize and let people know that they may have been through something similar or find common ground with others. It is also, because we are looking for attention that we like to over share.

I think the more mysterious people and none-sharers are that way because they don’t trust people easily and they will tell you what they think you need to know so that they can keep you at a distance. It’s probably like a defence mechanism and there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a private person. In fact, I am trying to be more private, but if I am having a bad day you will know about it and if I don’t like you then you will also know it. The only problem with private people is that you never know where you stand with them and that can become very annoying.

There is, of course, a mid point 🙂 a happy medium, if you will. There are some people who share just enough, but not everything and those are the people who are probably secure and fairly good a reading people and figuring out their intentions from the word go. They could teach the private people and the sharers a thing or two about learning to find that happy medium and if that is you then please tell us how to find equilibrium when it comes to how much of ourselves we give away…
