As close as I can come.
I openly reveal myself through my words, but I have a hard time letting people see who I really am. I want to be judged by who I am on the inside. If I show you my outside then that becomes the key. Or, at least that's the fear. So, really, this is probably as close as I can come. But today's my birthday and so I wanted to give myself growth. Just showing you this much is tremendous growth. I think I may even like who I am -- inside and out. That's a great gift. 5/8/02
