perceptions.

"We are all apt to believe what the world believes about us." -George Eliot

I wonder if I'm still trying to fill a role. I notice how quick I am to change something about myself the minute I feel someone perceives it negatively. Do I quiet my opinions and thoughts when someone else talks over me? Lately, yes. I can't explain why..potentially, it has to do with this unattractive need to be wanted and liked by everyone. Which is impossible - nobody can be liked by everyone. And I know that; I've been through this cycle before. So why do I still do it?

The world isn't going to wait for me to decide it's time to express myself. It'll pass me by (again) if I'm not careful and then I'll be scrambling to catch up. Head on straight, eyes forward.

In other news: The National Enquirer is eligible for the Pulitzer Prize. I wonder how the world will see journalists now.
