Do you know those people with a tough exterior that actually are big cowards? I remember coming home from school crying about being bullied by big and tough kids. My mom would always tell me that they aren’t really so tough – they’re just playing tough because they’re actually just as scared of the world as I am. I never believed her.
Growing up I realized how right she was. People who go to great lengths to show off certain qualities, probably don’t really possess those qualities. So next time you see someone with a snake tattoo, you can bet on the fact that they’re afraid of snakes (and mice too).
