Day 61: Growing up, people who know me would describe me for the longest time as bitter and emo. I was extremely insecure growing up, constantly downplaying myself and settling on the negative side of things — that way I wouldn’t be as disappointed when things fall apart. And things often did.
But then something happened: I got tired of being afraid and from constantly looking down. Somewhere along the way it dawned on me that negativity is nothing but unproductive and that drama is best left in movies.
Lauryn Hill said it best in ’98: Develop a negative into a positive picture.
