I think I have found myself: "free spirit". My true north is the word "slut". Is that who I am? I'm proud to be a free spirit or a slut. But for some reason the voices keep lecturing me, saying "men and women are different", that I haven't healed past a bad breakup, that I have low self-esteem. I think it stems from fear of what other people could say to me if they got to know me.
(On an aside, it's very offensive when people say "men and women are different", because men are able to fall in love and get married, so why are men able to fall in love if men and women are different? That means they aren't put in a box. They can do whatever they want. I want to be treated as an individual with a unique sexuality that is all my own, not as someone who's not being true to nature as woman).
So I found myself. Then why haven't the voices dropped?
The voices have been really bad these past two days. Yesterday they were tormenting me, saying I don't know what black people go through in this country. Today they were about the double standard, "men and women are different", you're a ho. One just said she'll make my life a living hell until I learn to love myself and love others. It makes me very afraid of people.
