After writing my last post, I’ve been thinking about myself and how hot and bothered I get about people being told to feel certain ways. It’s kind of bizarre because one thing that really confounds me at this point in time is how in the heck I’m supposed to feel my feelings. I’m so tied up in the knots of how I think I’m supposed to feel, and so conditioned by now to not let myself fully emote through anything, that I seriously don’t feel capable of really being where I am and feeling it fully. But I’ll be darned if I’ll let anyone deny me or anyone else the right to do so.
So, in light of all that, I think if I were a car, my bumper sticker would read:
“Fighting for the right for people everywhere to feel what they feel, because God knows I don’t know how to!”
