Sharing Is Hard
However, only a small number of that massed sea of faces ever seek to form any sort of meaningful relationship with me; by which I mean get close enough for me to ever consider they may possibly be considered as a friend.
And of that small number, it'll only ever be a minor fraction of those that I will actually befriend. That is, where I begin to let down my outer defences to reveal the sensitive me underneath...
If you're one of these extremely few souls, please take it as a complement. I trust you.
Unfortunately, I've had one or two people over the years who have betrayed that trust and because of that I can be quite wary of letting people get close - past experience makes me oh-so-careful.
Psalm 118:8 (NIV)
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.
