because everyone is boring..and because you’re different

there will come a point in time where we get too close to each other and our spikes come into contact, thereby wounding each other in that dangerous embrace of friendship.


“that is what the hedgehog’s dilemma is about: we meet someone for the first time. not knowing whether or not we will be accepted or rejected by the other, we try to look good. after being accepted for some time by the other, we begin to feel comfortable and relaxed, slowly and slowly, we begin to remove the mask and show bits of our true self. yet, like the hedgehog, our true selves are, unfortunately, full of spikes. but the mask functions as a shield covering our spikes so that no one will be hurt. It also covers our vulnerable selves so that we won’t be hurt either. but as we begin to grow closer, we begin to slowly remove that mask to reveal our true selves. we expose our vulnerabilities and expose the sharp spikes which could hurt someone. and so, there will come a point in time where we get too close to each other and our spikes come into contact, thereby wounding each other in that dangerous embrace of friendship.”
