"You have the right to all of it. You must want to own all of it. We will try to ward you away. We will try to explain to you that we have already walked that path. We will try to tell you that we have made your mistakes. We will claim that we are trying to spare you. But you will see our greed and self-service hiding behind our words. You will see us ward you away with one hand, while the other still shakes at the memories. Here is the thing—you have the right to every end of your exploration and no motherfucker anywhere can tell you otherwise."
"I am so brave,"Fear said to me once, in a microphoned whisper that sounded like a shout. I held it’s hand because it sounded like a good idea, but I should stop listening to Comfort, who was never all that creative. But I couldn’t let go… you see, I tried, but Reluctance sent me a persuasive email, fit with bullet points and the whole deal. So, I had lunch with Expectation who promised me a cupcake every time I did something right.
