I had planned a different post for today, but as so often happens in life, I have had to change those plans.
The reason for this is because of something unexpected that happened.
Over the last few days, ever since A asked me one simple question, “why are you trying to put yourself back into a box?”, part of me that I never knew was there realized what I had failed to see before. That I am human and humans don’t belong in boxes. Yes, people can live their entire lives in the boxes society has created and be perfectly happy, but once you realize the box is there and that you don’t really belong there, it becomes impossible.
Today, I realized that I had finally come to accept this truth and now all the conflict, all the doubts, all the questions have faded away. In they’re place was a calm that I have never enjoyed so fully in my life. Sitting here writing this I know that I am me. Nothing more, nothing less and I am perfectly fine with that.
