I can just be weird whenever I want, and there's the freedom of not caring what people think. Unless you're a banana. Now I can really stretch. I don't have to stay in the box.

At this point I can say to myself, So what if I fall, so what? I'm going to get back up. I look at pictures of myself when I was younger and I think, 'God, I was so gorgeous there, but I didn't feel it. I don't have big highs, and I don't have big lows. Even if this job goes away tomorrow, the nonstop ambition is a thing of the past for me. I've mellowed. You are the main character of your story. You have a chance to rewrite your story and do the things you've always wanted to do—and were afraid to try.

Affirmation and rejection turn out to be two sides of the same coin.
A refrain I hear regularly in my psychoanalytic consulting room is the anxiety of the unreturned text or email, or the ignored status update. The anxiety brings out a crucial difference between real and virtual contact. An ordinary encounter makes space for quiet proximity, the ineffable pleasure of simply being with someone. Online communication tends to preclude this kind of intimacy.
