“I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”

Reblog from 2/2/13 – When you have crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, the issue of how or when to open up to a new person is often anxiety provoking. Throughout my life, there have been individuals that I have really opened up to within hours of meeting them while there are people in my life who I truly NEVER feel comfortable talking to about anything significant. It all comes down to both people in the relationship being able to express a certain level of vulnerability, in my opinion.
