"I am worried about you," she said
"You are sharing too much publicly"

I paused
And agreed

She looked a bit shocked
She was prepared for a longer fight
I can be a fighter you see

But here is the thing…
Here is what I think you may be missing
I was not better with it all inside
I was not safer with all my bottled up stories
My suppressed emotions
My unfulfilled desires
I was living in a sea of jealousy
A nearly all consuming jealousy
I felt as if I was watching life pass me by
I felt as if I was an observer in my own world
And I could not get out
Until I got all the way in

I was dancing around intimacy
I was dancing around integrity
I was practicing pretending
And like a well trained parrot
I was mimicking you

So I had to find a way out
Otherwise I was going to check out
And the only way I have found
Is through

I knew what I had to do
I had to become the person I was pretending to be
And to do that
I had to own all of me
And I chose to do it publicly
To keep me in integrity

There are people on here who know me
Really know me
They know the worst parts of me
And they know what is good in me

So I cannot pretend
And I cannot lie
I cannot act like this is not me
All of me

So while I might share "too much" publicly
I can promise you,
This is the least you have ever had to worry about me
