I’m sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.
from Franny and Zooey
The I’m sick in this quote resonates with me lately. Not just in regards to not having the courage to be “an absolute nobody” (i.e. somebody who feels fine about being herself/enough/un-overly-invested in ego/etc.), but also in relation to having the courage to do any of the things that i want to be/do.
And what are those? I’m sick of not having the courage to say what I think, do what I feel, rest easy in uncertainty, and do like Sharon Van Etten says and be willing to lose sometime (slash all the time).
