Notebook entry, July 2010

From a notebook I kept in the summer of 2010. I was speaking of developing my writing, but there’s a larger application to growth in general.

“It is my better self I am trying to release, perhaps my best self, but only my weak self, my everyday self, can help it emerge. And so my talentless, flawed persona, the me I’ve constructed to get along with others, must find the strength and resources to bring my stronger, better self into the world.”
