Friends and family (same thing) for the sake of transparency I want you all to know I now ID as a “really romantic slut” and high priestess femme. If anyone wants to talk to me about this and start a dialogue, I’m comfortable with that. Thank you for respecting my identity

Being (f)un-employed has saved my life
I have not felt so much like myself in a very long time. I knew I was unhappy, but I don’t think I could grasp the severity, nor did I let myself grasp the severity, probably out of self-preservation.
The last few days have been wildly productive, eye-opening, hope-inspiring and filled with happiness.
This evening as I was having drinks on a patio with old and new friends, a new friend asked ” Isn’t it scary?” (in reference to quitting my job to venture out on my own)
” Slightly. ” I said ” Not nearly as scary as doing something that you hate, that is crushing you, and you feel yourself slowly slipping away. That is the really scary thing, sacrificing yourself”
I was really struck by my own words, and I am very proud of myself for fighting to get where I am now. Things have been falling into place for me since I decided to throw caution to the wind and take a chance.
Sure, it is scary. I don’t know what the future will hold- maybe I’ll be a broke ass, and I’ll have to start from square one all over again, but you know what? That’s okay. I’m going to live life on my terms. I will have my very own shop, I will create something real and full of life and passion. I will be my own boss, and bring something positive and new to my city and community.
I feel like I’m only just starting to live my life after 26 years, and that is extremely liberating and satisfying.
Ugh so proud of you and deeply envious as well. I need to take your story and use it for inspiration because Manon knows, I am not where I need to be
So happy for you!!!
