night and day, to make you everybody else
means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight -- and never stop fighting. "
~ E. E. Cummings
I wish it weren't so hard.
I wish the battle didn't exist.
I wish I wouldn't have to fight.
But it is, it does, and I have to.
Or I die.
I've heard it said if you keep trimming yourself down to what someone else expects you will soon whittle away to nothing.
I believe it. So I keep fighting.
