I love this, Deb. Along with all the other naysaying voices in our heads, this is among the worst. In an increasingly self-focused society, the compulsion to believe that everyone is watching us (no they aren’t, they’re terrified everyone is watching THEM) we waste decades being terrified of making mistakes. The moment I embrace that nobody gives a shit, I am free. My god, what freedom. I can fail, fail again, fail a thousand times over and nobody is watching. My barbaric yawp is mine and mine alone.
