I Know You, Do You Know Me?

I feel like I make a great effort to get to know, and REALLY know the people I am around regularly. And even, some I only see from time to time. But I came to a realization tonight. I don't think they know me as well as I know them. I'm trying to figure out if it is because they don't want to work at or try to get to know me, or if I just put on that good of a front. I wonder. I think I NEED somebody to know me.

I get this feeling all the time. And I think I'm the one at fault. I put on my public face, and hide my private face, the one that is really me, ar at least most of me. And hardly anyone gets the chance to see the FULL me, because I don't let them. Am I scared that they won't like what they see? Am I scared that they will judge me, and abandon me because of the REAL me? Am I nervous that once all of me comes out I won't be able to put her back? Yes.

Do you do this too?

I love you for you. And you know what? Regardless of who knows you, or the fears that you have of people knowing you, GOD KNOWS YOU AND LOVES YOU. All of you. Every single imperfection, quirky characteristic, and not always happy mood. God finds you irresistable, for you are HIS, and he loves you as you are.

I think God created us with a desire to be known, I'm not sure, it's just a personal belief. Writing a blog is a great way to allow people to know you - but I know what you mean about those in your life, I feel that way often myself.
