Just. Be. Real.
I will be the first to say that I've had walls around my heart at different points in my life. They were there for a reason. I built them high and strong, and it was not a feat to be undertaken by weak men. I maintained these walls. And even if someone managed to scale the walls, few were allowed to remain.
It was a lot of work. For a time I was okay with that.
But it is so freeing to just be real. Free from pressures, expectations, and being analyzed. To just be myself and not second guess everything. So much of my frustrations over the last month have stemmed from an inability to be real. At the time though, I didn't know that I was missing it.
That's what it feels like around these people. This is such freeing environment. I crave people that I can be real with.
