I really don’t like showing vulnerability. In any form. I don’t like admitting when I’ve been hurt, or when I want something I can’t have, or when I feel something towards someone that isn’t reciprocated. I don’t like feeling out of control or weak or helpless. I don’t like admitting when someone has gotten the best of me. So sometimes, I lie to defend myself. Or I put up a facade of indifference, or sarcasm, or false confidence.
I feel like I’m lying to myself, all the time.
