The eyes are the windows of the soul. -English Proverb
Some years ago, a friend of a friend who'd spent several social occasions with me told me she thought I was difficult to know. I found that assessment sort of odd, since I think of myself as a fairly open person in general. She said that she felt that while on the surface I'm perfectly outgoing, friendly and charming, she felt that I held my cards close to my chest and only revealed exactly what I want people to know. Isn't that what everyone does, I thought? According to this particular girl, the answer is no.
I wonder what one loses when they reveal all their secrets?
