— The Freedom of Us ♡
I learned at a very young age, that when you are curious about what frightens you or what you don’t understand….more times than not, you find that there is nothing to fear and much to understand. Fear got old real quick (although I am still entertained by horror movies/books). I was that child that turned off the lights and looked under my bed. The one who would stare at the dark and open closet, daring whatever was in there to come out and show itself. The one who ignored threats of hell, and “gods”, for the freedom of curiosity. My curious nature has always been. It is a permanent part of my essence….growing with me. To be bitter, or hateful, or vengeful, or jealous, ect?….all those aftereffects of fear….No….These feel-ins cannot withstand the scrutiny of authentication.
