"What’s been your greatest accomplishment?"
"Keeping in touch with distant friends and relatives."
"Why is that important?"
"It’s important to always have people who remember you at various stages of your life. It’s especially important as you get older, because there are less of those people around. And they remind you who you are."
Lately, I feel like I’m reducing myself to the smallest parts of myself. I chip off tastes of me in broadcasts of my taste. I’m externalized in emails and shared cigarettes. I become my grossest flaws: a lone pimple on my back, my minor credit card debt, my inability to say “I love you” to those I do. I am jealous of everyone who gets to see me from the outside, as they seem to like me fine, even love, they say, and I loathe most of what I imagine myself to be.Fiona Duncan, Adult Mag (via 1111111222111122)
