Has been the FIRST year I haven’t lived my life according to Other Peoples’ standards.
It took me way too many decades to finally not look to other people to tell me how I’m doing.
This might cause me to APPEAR more vulnerable, but I can only appear vulnerable if I’ve grown STRONGER.
I may look flimsy, but I’m not. I’m frequently wavering yet solidly substantial.
In chemical terms: mercury doesn’t necessarily combust.
