Quotable

“Finding Yourself” is not really how it works. You aren’t a ten-dollar bill in last winter’s coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. “Finding Yourself” is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.

About loup

39 and holding, married, childfree, tattooed atheist. I run my home for the comfort and safety of the dogs. Favorite things: wolves, most things pink, Brent Johnson in the net and the smell of the Blue Ridge Parkway in October.
