At least that’s what I’m afraid you’ll think of me.
For my entire life, I’ve been scared that if I told people what I really thought or what I really believed, I would end up hurting them and looking like a jerk.
So I bit my tongue.
I took the path of least resistance.
I wouldn’t tell people that I think marriage makes relationships harder, the nuclear family makes us lonely, and I don’t give a fuck about their new car. Then I started sharing my opinion on this site.
I realized that here, I can say whatever I want and people can agree, disagree, or reject it all together. I don’t have to play nice, and I don’t have to hold back.
I can practice telling the truth.
I consider each essay a work of art, not because it should be in a museum, but because I give it everything I’ve got.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy my work.
(but honestly, who cares?)
