I know alot of people have different ways of puting up with people, and how they get to know people, but what i have noticed lately is that every person i have met has had a different " barrier." What i mean by barrier is that wall we keep between ourselves and other people.
For me personaly i only let a select few past my barrier, and for me i have more than one. When i first meet someone i am normaly out going and eager to get to know the person. The first barrier for me is being extreamly bubbly... normally to the point of annoying. I find when people dont mind this i generaly stop being "annoying" because i think that they are a good friend. For me that is like a way of weeding out the people in your life that will stick by you and the ones that wont. My second barrier has only been broken by a few people. Generally I dont like to let people past it, the main reason for this is because it is really really terrifying to know that someone knows the darkest parts about you, the past that you dont like to share, the memories that you try to forget.
So my questions for every one are: what is your barrier, and how do you know if/ when you should let someone past?
