We humans are a sophisticated type. We are all comprised of layer upon complex layer of personality, secrets, memories, and everything that makes us, us. You might not ever realize it, but you have different layers yourself. We have different layers for the different people we encounter on a day to day basis.
Our outer layer is, for the most part, is made up of small talk and awkward conversation. Our outer layer is for our acquaintances, peers, classmates, and coworkers that we are forced to communicate with on a daily basis. There is not a lot to it. Most people are extremely similar on the outside. We save the uniqueness and quirkiness for our friends and family. If you dig down really deep into a person’s layers, you might eventually get down to the center. The last layer. This is our real self, that we save for the very special people in our life. For me, there is only one person who has dug down into the middle, and actually gets to know the real me. Some people might have shown their center layer to more than one person, but a lot of us save it for just one person that we feel so comfortable with that we break down all of our barriers and show them the most true side of us.
Some of us have far less layers than others. It is all dependent on how complex of a person you are, and how much to you there is. There are a lot of people that the layer you first experience is quite similar to their center layer; simply because there are not many layers in between. What you see is what you get. Some of us are completely comfortable showing our true self to anyone that will give the time to see it. But there are also a lot of us that have so many layers, and are so complex, that there might only be one person who ever gets to the center. We find it more difficult to break down barriers for people we do not completely trust, so not many people see our true self. The point being, we are a complex species. We all have our own unique personalities and attributes that make up our layers.
