I like to think that fears are nonexistent when you’re not afraid of them, threats insignificant if you don’t let them weigh you down.
We often hear the disapproving words of others without realizing the voices come from our own heads. Pieces and particles of facts and fiction forming something resembling the shape of human beings, telling us what is and is not expected and frowned upon about us. As if all that were not enough, we sit up and do as they say, or least in response to what they say. Amazing.
Well, we should consider ourselves either really smart to be able to produce such convincing beings or really fucking stupid for believing them. I can’t pick either, so maybe both?
