Ridiculous




From a very young age I was shown the truth about myself:

I am absolutely ridiculous.

This truth applied to almost all my ideas and desires.

And since I have learnt it from a very young age,

it is encoded deep in my personal neurology.

As a result, I am not able to give permission to my ideas and desires.

As a result, I am fixated on approval and my sense of connection suffers greatly.

And it cannot be unlearnt.

The best I can do now is to learn how to use it to my advantage,

to investigate what it would mean if I was willing to be absolutely ridiculous at all times.

This willingness is

a type of freedom,

a type of empowerment.

And it is not an easy task.
