Being around someone who reveals nothing about themselves is a little unnerving, isn’t it?
Everything about them is clouded.
You are not sure how to act.
And you have no idea what you can, or can’t, say – much less any idea how they will react when you do.
What some often miss is that this is often done intentionally.
Talking with someone who reveals nothing, I hear myself madly filling the emptiness with information about myself.
