I want to be done with cynicism. When I talk and when I write, I try to no longer protect myself from feeling dumb, or from being perceived as uncool. I still worry about whether my take on something is well-informed. I worry that if I put an opinion out there, I will later change my mind and wish I could take back the words. I fear that my vehement argument for a particular way to do something will be seen as a dismissal of any other choice. Yet, I am trying to say, anyway, my thoughts and my feelings. Unguarded. Not hipster-"vulnerable", ha ha. Just honest.
