self-disclosure implications

my life has been quite adventurous lately, and what I’m able to share is this, in a moment of clarity, perhaps insight, in the waking minutes of this morning, I’m able to articulate now the strong preference I have for self-disclosure, rather than self-protection.. implications and repercussions are this: (1) you get to read some of my painfully personal thoughts in this online journal; (2) I take in some very different and unorthodox assumptions in the way I communicate and relate and work with others, even at times surprising others in a maladaptive way 🙂 [new word I learned recently]; (3) makes it very hard for me to work freely and comfortably in a traditionally-influenced Asian setting.. I could write tomes on why I have chosen to bias myself in this intensely engaging way, but I won’t bore you with the details.. the oversimplified way to say it is this: why hide when you can share, life is too short for shallow small talk all the time
