transparency allows depth

The worst part of people opening up is not that we become closer, but we clearly reveal our uncompromising nature that is afraid and seeking stability.
Our transparency, vocally stated, is one-directional: it is the depths of self-revealed, resplendent in need, fear, and longing.

Clouding the waters with murk obscures you and can protect you, but it also keeps people on the banks, only tiptoeing into your shallows. To expose your depths is to invite deep relationships.

As well, your openness models openness: reciprocity of genuine comradery.
