Learning to love my FREAK,
I have lived most of my life being afraid of what other people will think of me if I don’t show up according to their expectations. I have been doing a lot of work on this for the last few years and am much better at living my life according to what feels good to me. I love Sarah’s book because 1) The stories are funny but very eye opening and mind blowing at the same time. More than once I was relieved to know I wasn’t the only one who… 2) I could be a rebel and not read it from cover to cover, I could skip around! It feels so good not to follow the rules. 3) I got even more comfortable in my FREAK. Today, I painted my nails black with glitter polish over them. My mom is going to “freak” when she sees it and I am totally o.k. with that. I can accept it with love and laughter. Thanks again Sarah for daring to FREAK and giving the rest of us permission to seek out and live our own FREAK!
