"That's just who I am," is a Bullshit, Made-Up Narrative.
You know that saying “When someone shows you who they are, believe them?” Well, I’d like to alter it to read, “When someone shows you who they believe they are, believe them.” Because we are not etched in stone.
I’m not special; that’s probably one of the most comforting life realizations I’ve had in a long time. Nothing snaps shit right into perspective like talking with someone else and hearing, “Yeah. Been there.”
