My words and a recreation of my reflection on this late and lovely evening
I keep catching myself in the act of trying to erase my own existence, whether that means staying up so late I feel like a ghost, reading myself into oblivion, or playing the Sims 4 for hours on end, I am valiantly trying to keep myself from living my life. Tonight I stood and I looked at myself in the mirror to remind myself that I am indeed a person and I owe it to myself to live rather than hide. Tonight that means going to bed before midnight. Tomorrow it will mean folding and putting away the clothes Ive had on my floor for days. Right now it is sharing.
