It’s a funny thing, the way we feel and perceive ourselves.
I’ve been doing some work on myself for a while, moving towards authentically presenting myself, and moving away from the compulsive inclination to be invisible. Being small has been my survival response for a long time, but it’s kinda ruining my life.
And I think I must not be very good at it anyway. A dear and wonderful friend gave me this cup today for my birthday. She thought of me as soon as she saw it . It occurs to me that perhaps, not only is there nothing to be gained by living small, but that as my belligerent inner self is so obvious to others, it seems a bit silly to even be trying. Who the fuck am I kidding?
Hold on dear friends, you think I’m wild now, you just wait til I abandon all pretense. It’s going to be AWESOME
