Feeling rather insightful as of late

I know who I am, & i'm always me. I am sensitive, I am mildly immature, but I am real. I value my life, and all the indcredible people that have impacted it. Lessons learned from the absent-minded, morals gained from the unconventional. I know that people will tear me down & hurt my pride. Maybe they won't like me, or understand me, but not every chance belongs to me. At least I can say I relished in the moments of being myself & risked being completely cut open. To my understanding, that is freedom.

"...choose to believe in your own myth
your own glamour
your own spell
a young woman who does this
(even if she is just pretending)
has everything...."

-Francesca Lia Block

"There can be a fine line between being courageous in following your dreams and being self-destructive in the service of ego, greed, and approval. But then, my mother never told me that if I did everything I was programmed to do and chased all the things I was supposed to chase-and wear, and be without ever developing a true and unshakable sense of self, I'd crash into a million pieces one day when something went wrong." -Kelly cutrone

Some people have to find things out the hard way.
