I was telling my shrink the other day how the person I hate in life is the person I was ten years ago. If you believe that way of thinking then you can speculate that I am really dealing with learning how to stop hating myself. I also find it interesting to note that I have become the person I used to laugh at and make fun of.
I’m fifty-five years old. I’m figuring out what truly matters in life. I used to think it was $180 jeans and $80 t-shirts. Now I get excited when I can find Greek yogurt on sale for eighty-eight cents. Make fun of me but if I buy ten of them I’ll pocket a buck twenty and you can put that towards your White Claw your spending five bucks on at some shitty bar with a bunch of plastic people that think they’ll make money some day by being an Instagram model. I cut my own hair. I like sweat pants and t-shirts. I don’t really shave but I do run some clippers over my face every few days. I don’t like silence and have developed a sort of verbal tic where I grunt for seemingly no apparent reason. Trust me. People notice. Based on their reaction I will assume it is of great concern to them. I enjoy it because it creates distance. I’m not a big fan of people being in my personal space. If you made it this far in my post you either find it fascinating or perhaps you may be considering a restraining order. Both are logical.
So laugh all ya want. Just know that one day you’ll understand. I just hope you can figure out your journey and purpose faster then me.
