Figuring Life Out as I Go Along.
I'm an expert on nothing: I'm thirty-seven, I have an 14 year old son with Asperger's, his father is stationed halfway across country, I am a recovering alcoholic, I'm remodeling my home and I'm in a dating holding pattern- not single or taken.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.
