…Is It You…

January 29, 2018

I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. - Jack London

I don’t think I want to do this anymore…what good is it to continue on this path that is not mine?

You are not good enough to learn a different way, so  you must.

But I am not me.

Too bad, you made a choice to become what it is you thought you were supposed to.

No, I did not make that choice, it was they who made me feel, as a young girl, that I was not good enough just to be her.

Why are you still listening to them?

You  just told me it was too late.

Why are you going to listen to anyone but her?

Who?

That young girl.

She is gone, its just me now.

Really, you don’t think she’s in there somewhere?   What would she tell you now?

She would tell me to get on with it and not give pause to their thoughts.

So why don’t you?

Because their opinion matters.

Why?

They made me.

No, nature made you.  You owe no one anything.

I’m older now and changed.

So change back.
