A Misleading Gap
is a gap between the person I am and the person I want you to see.
Filling this gap can be done in two ways: The first is for me to
stretch who I am into the illusion of who I am projecting. I must keep
up the facade, while I diligently work to build up substance behind the
wall of pretension. This method leaves me empty and never satisfied
with my life. My illusion thickens and hardens into a wall you'll never get through.
The second way is for me to drop the illusion and let you see who I
really am. There's a mess back here; it's in total disarray. I'm
scared of what you'll think. When I drop my illusion, to my surprise,
it was also feeding yours. It seems we both have a mess on our hands.
I'll get a shovel and you a rake.
