Cut to fit

“We consider which parts of ourselves we want the world to see, which parts are acceptable.”

I coined a similar metaphor when I was younger, in an early journal, I must have been 18 and just starting to figure myself out, that’s not right, I only recently started figuring myself out, no, wait, that’s not right either, I only recently started making progress in figuring myself out. I started long ago, I noticed how we would cut out the parts of ourselves that didn’t fit so that we’d all fit together. Talk about a puzzle piece.
