lately, i am feeling vulnerable but assertive. such a paradox. honestly, i am noticing that there is a lot of tension between what i desire and deem a good life and what the mainstream thinks is a valid life. that doesn't sound bad on paper but living it out takes a certain kind of courage. Let's say this all is a work-in-progress.
do you encounter tension between what you desire for your life and other's expectation? if so how do you deal with them
