Despite my best efforts wishes, I am not a mysterious self-concealer or little-by-little revealer. I share and share too much. Maybe it's because I feel such anxiety about it beforehand, when talking is still in its potential stages, that when the dam is breached it is gone in an instant.
Is this true? Is the distinction one that I have made up? Are all of my pained moments of wanting to speak the same as someone else's periods of silence and apparent self-control?
