Listening to a podcast this morning talking about being your full and authentic self, even if that means being vulnerable or out of alignment of what is “normal”.
And that is probably one of the most terrifying ideas ever.
But I guess that’s normal for someone who is creative.
I have also been told that I come off as scary or intimidating because of how my brain works.
Which of course means that I tend to hide parts of myself to make other people comfortable. Finding my fellow weirdos at my writing group has been a gods-send.
But being my full and authentic self outside of there? That is going to take work.
Still, being me -fully and unapologetically- sounds a lot more fun than trying to fit into the mold of the proper lady, businessperson, or anything else.
