Overflow – 2014
There is nothing more agonising to me than watching myself destroy an opportunity by crumbling under my own neurotic insecurities. When this used to happen, it would happen very quickly, and I felt powerless to stop it.
Once it would pass, the flood of anger, disappointment, regret, shame and sadness would continue to flow out of me until I felt like I’m completely surrounded by it. These thoughts feel toxic, like black tar, and feel alien to me – but I can’t help but believe that they are me at the time.
