I need to be true to myself.
I am not this person who wears this armor all the time.
I am not cold or distant. I am not manipulative
I am warm and loving.
I want to take this armor off.
I feel love and pain and joy and fear and a million other things that swirl through my crazy busy head so fast it is hard to keep track of them all.
I want to feel safe to be me; honest, open, warm, loving, funny, obtuse, irritating, creative, anxious and a million other things.
I need to be treated gently, communicated with clearly and loved unconditionally.
Because I AM ME.
