I had to stop myself from highlighting this entire article. I think of this often, regarding myself. How who I am here is who I want to be in real life. Yes, I write from experience and speak my truth, but I don't always maintain such boldness in my 'real life'.
There are times I've gone back and read pieces I've written and blush at my brazeness. I want to get to a point where I smile instead.
I love you dearly, thank you for saying what I'm sure so many of us feel.
