Well, in the vein of being honest, as I burbled about in my last post, I have this lovely quote to share with you:
“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
It’s so true, isn’t it? The world will never stop fighting to stifle us, to stuff us into the mold of what they think we should be. Life is a battle; life is confusing. That’s why I’m so grateful that my God has my best in mind and at heart. He shows me every day how to better become my true self; the self that I was created to be, before the world shoved in to try and warp me, twist me, and cover me in scars. As long as I’m listening, that is. Yet He is also infinitely patient, never giving up on me, even when I allow the world to get to me.
On a different note, where do you stand on the capitalization question of cummings’s name? I’m always insecure about it, because I’ve heard arguments on both sides of the question. Do you capitalize it, or not?
