“But to be a bold and strong woman that commands respect in real life, you can’t be a chaotic, antagonistic, drama-filled being inside.

You can’t display that angsty wandering energy of someone that is always frantically seeking and never settled.” This is the wisest thing I’ve read in a long while. I certainly have felt this in life and in the beginning i met it with a begrudging “but I don’t wannnaaaaa” energy. Nowadays it’s much more of a quiet welcoming of an old friend reminding me when I’ve stepped too far forward into seeking and need to return to my peaceful home of the present.

Thank you. I agree it’s funny how the things I fought against for so long have finally won out and feel welcoming and appropriate. Valuing peace and calm more has for sure changed the ranking of all my priorities!
