Many of us are slaves to our minds. Our own mind is our worst enemy. We try to focus, and our mind wanders off. We try to keep stress at bay, but anxiety keeps us awake at night. We try to be good to the people we love, but then we forget them and put ourselves first.
About a year ago I completely related to Hank’s point of view, but now I see that Andrew’s advice to ‘find out who you are and try not to be afraid of this’ is actually the next step in this process. I know he was speaking about people who are coming out in particular, but I guess it goes for everyone who is struggeling with their self image or self esteem. And I’m more drawn towards his constructive thoughts and encouragement right now.
Which doesn’t mean I love Hank any less!
You cannot fix what you will not face.
You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You can find yourself by coming into the present.
My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions. I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality. And it will be the death of me.
