Release

"But why acting?"
"I'm not sure,
it's just what has always felt closest to right."
"But it doesn't anymore?"


"No...I don't know.
         I feel like I owe it to myself I guess."


"To your former self or to who you are now?"
"Former."
"Even if you don't want that anymore?"
"Yeah
...I don't know."
"Let me ask you something, when you were a child and people asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up, did you say an actor?"
"No."
"What did you say?"

"I said happy."

Wow, this is exactly how I've felt for the past couple of months, except it wasn't acting.

I loved the thanks post, I hope she never listens.

Very beautiful and poignant. That last line is perfect.
