Most people who met Val for the first time thought she was that happy girl, who is really kinda immature and childish, but was she really? I remember having really “deep” conversations with her… and she does have great insight into some issues. And all that “superficial-ness” was just an act.
Me: Jie, why do you present yourself to be that shallow, childish person?
Her: It is easier this way… people won’t expect too much from me. If I behave like a bimbo, people won’t expect me to have anything intelligent to say.
No, my Jie is not all that superficial. She does take the bimbo-playacting a bit too far sometimes and I had learnt over the years that the more “bimbotic” she was, the more she is actually trying to hide. I believe that she was under the impression that if she pretended to be an airhead, she wouldn’t need to deal with her other issues.
