When I was younger I got a lot of shit for being an introvert. You can’t change the world with your mouth closed. I’m discussing this specifically in relation to creativity and balance, but I was set back in a lot of other ways, too.
I’m long-long over that now but it’s something to think about.
I half-filled this journal all in one day, all in just a few hours. It’s that kind of motion that drives me to put down my thoughts.
I never felt like I fit in, I know this is common. I think when you’re younger you expect that some day you’ll figure that out.
What I’ve found to be true is that I don’t fit into the box that says I fit in, and I don’t fit into the box that says I don’t fit in. I don’t fit in anywhere, and because of that, I fit in everywhere. This is something I realized years ago and it changed everything.
