These moments are almost like contractions except instead of a baby at the end, you either learn about your shadow by echolocating off your patient friends to learn who you are, you get rich and buy us enough stuff that we stick around, or you get so lonely and so afraid to say anything that you fucking kill yourself you fucking prick! We put up with you all these years waiting for you to realize how much you suck because we knew it would be worth it once the tidal wave of shame and terror fills your soul and washes your shit away. Because this whole time we have seen, with ease of a fog-proof windshield on a damp day, directly through your delusional, at times seemingly psychotic, grandeur. And we know you're true. And we love that person. And we want to be a part of their realizing.
