When I was in high school everything that I thought was normal and right in the world was considered wrong – and I believed that it was. Everything I said or did was seen in a negative light thanks to those around me who felt that they had the authority to decide what was right. I know now that they did not have the authority but only the conviction.
When I was in high school everything that I knew and loved was inconsistent and backwards – at best. Everything I thought was real and permanent began to disappear outside of the concrete walls and I soon found that it was alright. I know now that there is no one else I would rather be than myself – and I control the audacity to do so.
It took years of confidence building and understanding from those around me who formed a support circle, but I am here and I can now love The Power of Mess for what I wanted it to be: reality.
The Power of Mess is something that I started when I was in high school as a private place (yes private even though it was on the internet) where I could not be harmed by those who judged. A place where I could be myself and not worry about those who harassed me because I would never know them in real life. It was my branch out into the universe to be the unique and weird soul that I was and still am. Now the mess is so much more – it is everything I aspire to be, everything I want to inspire in others, and everything I want to leave behind when I expire.
This is The Power of Mess, and I am ScrtSolstice.
