i'm coasting down hills not forcing myself to pedal. i'm letting things that are not mine crumble & burn around me & walking away unscathed. i'm stepping out of lessons meant for others & letting them live through them. i'm hacking trails in sweaty, unknown jungles. i'm taking off my hero mask. i'm putting down my therapist notepad. i'm letting myself be the person no one will look for answers from. why? because sometimes it's not Quan Yin, sometimes it's Kali. And that's positive too. We just aren't taught to embrace it.
