Mi casa, en el medio de la calle

Posted by Cory , Monday, November 8, 2010 12:01 AM

Life has been full of introspection lately. Maybe it's just my way of getting used to all the rain, I don't know. Anyway, I do a lot of thinking these days. Through this internal examination, it has occurred to me that I have a tendency to work really, really hard to keep my life compartmentalized (buzzword for this post brought to you by the most recent episode of "Dexter"). The example that immediately springs to mind involves relationships with the people that I work with. Aside from coworkers that have, in time, become close friends, I don't really share personal details at work. That part of my life is separated (compartmentalized, if you will [see what I did there?]) from the rest, though that's not to say that it's a bad thing. In fact, I'd argue that a healthy amount of reservation is fairly necessary to maintain professionalism in the workplace, but I digress.

Returning to the subject at hand, I wonder how to reconcile all the compartments that I've created in my life with one another. It follows logic that, at some point, these separated areas will have to come to some sort of merger, right? I worry sometimes about how things will be explained, how exactly things will come to light. It's not that I have anything to hide, necessarily, but the idea of shifting my method of operation from calculated withholding to full (or at least increased) disclosure is daunting enough to give me more than a little pause.
