I think I always knew I would be a disappointment to the world. And before that sounds too terrible, keep reading. What I mean is to what our societal values dictate we be. I was never going to be straight. I was never going to get a “normal” job at a corporation. I was never going to do things the way they had always been done. I was never going to submit to a smaller reality in exchange for a false sense of security.

My programming made me feel like I was never going to be enough because of where my values lay. How I wanted to express my creativity and love. I get tired of watching all of these videos of “successful people” who say “I figured out how to make the system work for me and I’ll teach you in these five easy steps”. I’m not interested in someone else’s path. Or following in their footsteps.

How do you view your success? How do you view perfection? Was it based on someone else’s idea? Do you judge your perfection based on how other people feel or think about you?

Do you wait for other people to give you power? Do you diminish who you are to make other people comfortable? Is it only perfect if someone else says so? What will it take to be yourself? There is no path to perfection, just a jungle of possibility.
