Your response made me smile. Moon Beam — I pray I am correct in my assumption that you have never had a moment of self consciousness or doubt when faced with a room full of strangers or people whose intentions towards you were unclear.
That is the vibe of it all — to be able to look that Beast in the face & not give a fuck. To not let the opinions of others sway you — to not need to conform who you are to fit into a box of another’s making simply to be ‘liked’. I sincerely hope you have never felt this and had to make the choice — be liked or be real.
Chose real. And then decide — Do I like these people? Are they worth the effort I would put forth to make them part of my world? Are they worthy of My Fucks? Sometimes the answer is no.
The room can be a conference room of coworkers — a seminar — a presentation — a social affair — a class — or our own family reunion.
Any place two or more gather — we get to choose — I don’t have to bend into a anyone else’s shape to ‘be liked’. I just have to be.
I get to decide. My Choice.
That is what this is about. Are you willing to give yourself away for people you don’t know on the chance their opinion counts?
