Singled Out: Satellite's Say The Words
"Say The Words" is about looking yourself in the eye. If thoughts only have real substance once put into words, then admitting what you believe about yourself is the first step to finding out if it's true. I say that with certainty because again, IF thoughts only have substance in words, that means you don't even know what you believe about yourself until you say it.
"Say The Words" was my way admitting I was shutting down inside, and watching other people do the same. Like looking in the mirror to say, "Why? Because you aren't where you thought you'd be when you were 17? Join the club." Admitting it created the decision of what to do about it. For me, growing up has meant letting go of the defense mechanisms I learned as a child; and maybe even the desire to defend myself all together, eventually.
For now, a toast: May we welcome the realization that the lives we lead bleed into one another. Let it be honest. Let it be real. Let it be a beautiful history ahead of us.
