“If I didnt define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other peoples fantasies for me and eaten alive. – Audre Lorde”
This is how I’ve been feeling lately. People seem to want everyone to go with the flow, swim downstream with the herd, no individual thought or unique perspecitves. But, I tend to swim upstream, against the current. You have to stay true to your own mind. Stick to your guns, often in spite of what ‘they’ insist upon.
