Unfold

People, don’t be surprise to read this blog post because this is finally my confession to y’all.
To tell the truth, Unfold, a song by Marie’ Digby, is actually very much related to my life and that’s why I watched the video over and over when she first posted it online and I put the song on repeat when I first downloaded it (yes, from YouTube) and that song happened to be the song I played on my guitar over and over every time I got home that I think my whole family has memorize the guitar pattern already.

Unfold is her way of saying how she finds it hard to open up to others around her. That’s why she’s singing, “Watch me Unfold...” because she has decided to finally let her guard down. Well, that’s not the part that’s kind of like me. I think those who know me know how open I can be that I got scolded about it sometimes. :p Heck, what am I doing here telling the whole world my life story if I’m not the unfoldED type. But the thing about me is… I tend to push away those people I’m close to. No, I’m not being dramatic, that’s the whole truth. When I get close to someone, unintentionally I would do things that irritate them to their deepest skin. I guess that’s why I appreciate so much the close friends I have because I know how hard it is for them to stick with me through my ‘karut’-ness. Usually the way I would do it is by being too emotional, too sensitive. I realized that when someone is just an acquaintance I don’t give a damn if that person calls me a fat, cry-baby pig (okay, that’s an image). But once I start to realize that a person could have an impact on my life, every single thing he or she says or does could trigger the wrong side of me. I say ‘could’ because I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is that could make me sad.

But when I think about it, that’s the childish side of me that I wish to throw as far away as possible. Something so insignificant can be a big deal to me because as I explained earlier, it’s just my defense mechanism working against those who are close to me. Not because I hate those people. It’s far from that! But the perfectionist in me is simply not ready for people to see the real Syaza (not ChEsZa). That’s why I kept pushing those close to me away. But what surprised me most all the time is that usually these people that I unconsciously pushed away are those that decide to stay and strangely enough they are also those who find my ‘too sensitive’ side fascinating. And that fascinates ME. Thank you.
