Yesterday I received an email from my alma mater asking me to fill out a survey regarding my existence post-graduation. My shock didn’t come from realizing I haven’t really found a job I loved, but the part that read -“since your graduation six months ago…”- what?! Time is so inconspicuous, I wonder if my body has kept up with the fact that I am now (or at least, I should be) almost 23 years old.
We have grown up believing that what we are made up of is not good or beautiful. We have been taught how to hide and conceal many of our characteristics and temporary conditions.
Society has embedded in our brains the need to see and copy. Mimicking all that is around us has been our second nature, because our first nature is just to be.
