Why is it easier to be totally open with strangers and not your own family?


I am comfortable around strangers but hide things from family because they don't see me in the same light.

    I definitely have blunders I have been judged for. My the story I wrote about falling off a cliff is the perfect example. I recently had a night out at a concert with strangers and we were all singing together. But my family is always there. Thanks!

    You hit the nail on the head completely when I come to my family. Especially now since I am currently living back at home and sometimes feel under a microscope. I volunteer and get out of the house and try to meet new people very often. Thanks!

    I agree. Fortunately I have best friends I can vent to, and with strangers it's more about being superficial and having fun, maybe sharing a story or two. Sometimes family can be intrusive, but I know they love me in their way, crazy or not.

    Thanks for your comment. That is probably the key.
