HEYYYY!! Did you know I’m SUPER introverted? Like I hate talking on the phone, I feel completely drained after a day of doing hair and talking for hours, I get anxious going to any social function, I barely like leaving my house (my poor kid). I even get nervous at the grocery store . I go into recluse mode for days at a time following extroverting or working for a few days (that’s why I’m not always on top of texts or messages). I’m kind of awkward anyway but especially if I don’t know you, shiiiit actually even if I do know you. Over the last year I’ve been breaking down barriers by going Live on FB, documenting my life on IG stories and making posts just like this + forcing myself into social situations... However, I still get exhausted and overstimulated quite easily and you will find me in quiet mode MOST of the time. #NowYouKnow —-Where my fellow introverts at?! ♀️
I was giving advice to a girlfriend the other day and these words spontaneously came out of my mouth..."Babe, this could mean anything or nothing"
I stopped and thought, "Damn Chels, what a great message to tell your mind when it it is tempted to go into over-drive! What a great mantra for anxious minds, worriers, catastrophic thinkers and over-analyzers!"
The meaning we put towards something might be correct, but it also might be completely wrong. Therefor, putting all of our precious energy into trying to figure it out is useless.
Meaning will come with time in hindsight. Or... it may not come come at all, but by then the thought will be old news anyways.
Let go of the attachment to knowing exactly what everything means, and accept that whatever comes out of this thing is meant to be.

This is exactly what it felt like writing the story I just posted on YouTube, “The Night I Realized I was Human.” Link-
But hey, it’s out there now, so I don’t have to write it again, ey?
I remember helping that actor learn how to breathe fire in my #brooklyn living room... ...before i went total #recluse, i used to make #studentfilm s.
This was from the second movie I ever made...it had to be a #silentfilm ; in this scene the protagonist is #tripping face after swallowing all the acid to hide it from the police — who are now interrogating him. It ends with him signing a false confession indicting his friend in a murder... it was supposed to be a #comedy. HAH
