That feeling when you meet someone for the first time in your life, and you are to reveal something you don't feel OK with, to say the least... Not nice, at all. You almost wish you could do the toddler trick: cover your eyes with your hands, convinced no one sees you. And actually, not being seen.
Yet, you do what you think is best, and go on. Guess that is part of choices we make in our life. Sometimes just for us. Other times, for us and the ones we really care about.
As in the end, it is the best for them, too.
