You read it correct. Being naked is the title and we all know how difficult that can be. So many issues; some aren’t confident about the way they will look, some are worried about how much to bare, some are just against the “being naked” concept and some are plain scared of it. I know, I must have lost you. This post isn’t going anywhere like this. But, I do have something to say… this post isn’t about being naked physically. It is about being naked emotionally, it is about opening up.
Yeah, you read it correct. I am talking about being naked in public, In front of strangers. Can you think of a single person on this earth who knows everything about you? Not one person, not even the closest of our relations know the entire truth, right? Our parents and siblings are far more aware of all the nitty-gritty details of our lives that, we think they do not have any idea about. But, there’s more than what meet the eyes or the ears. Each one of us goes through that phase where we lock ourselves in and shut the entire world outside. Some things are dealt-with being alone, some circumstances leave us all alone and we have to walk through the darkness with just one ray of hope so, we do as the situation demands.
once through, we are back to our normal selves. All I’m saying is, we all have our secrets, not necessary that they are bad. Nevertheless, they are just locked up deep down in our subconscious. No one but, I know myself completely. Same goes for every one else (I suppose).
Yet again, you read it correct. No one knows the complete you. We can never open up entirely to anyone, we can never be naked completely in front of others not even our very own folks let alone in front of strangers. Why could this be? Vulnerability?? No one wants to be vulnerable, no one wants to be taken advantage of and no one wants to face the painful “breaking of trust”. I think physical or emotional, being naked is scary, embarrassing and even in the closest of bonds it doesn’t come easily. We all hide a bit of us no matter what.
