Nobody knows anybody

Sometimes you will not understand why
How many people can you argue that you really know them
Maybe your best friend, relative or even your partner
You are sure and think that you know them pretty good
After all, you and them are transparent to each other.

Do you have things you strictly keep to yourself?
Things no one knows and you will do everything & anything to keep it that way
Think about that for a minute,
So do you think there's anyone out there who truly knows you?

Just like our brains, 
We are after protecting ourselves,
In everything we do,
And naturally have set boundaries for that.

If you feel that by disclosing a certain information,
May cause harm or anything negative outcome,
You will do your best to keep it hidden,
And you ensure to keep it that way.

Every Saint was once a sinner,
No one can claim to have a clean sheet,
Each one has a past or something they are not proud of,
So it's very normal to have those secrets.

If by mistake you find out about something / someone, 
You were not supposed to know or see,
Before you judge and start wondering,
If you ever really knew that particular person.

Just remember,
Nobody knows anybody,
We show the version of us that we think you want,
Or the version we want you to have,
And this may vary with different people.

That's why you will have best friends forever,
Inner circles guys, partners in 'crime',
Frenemies, among others,
Each of them have a version of who they think you are.

So don't be mad or try to force it,
Be contented with the version they have given you of themselves,
Don't judge them harshly,
That's their personal decision.

Same goes to you,
Don't be pressured to be who they want you to be,
Or what they think is best version of you,
You are the boss here,
Be who you are with no explanation to make.

  1. I make no claim to have been a perpetual saint and my son knows me better than anyone else alive. His view “I forgive you, Dad.” This, to a father who never beat his child or belittled him. Yet, things could have been better for him, growing up.
