This piece really spoke to something inside of me. It didn’t really hit home until the little conversation between you and Jack.

See, I grew up in a very blue collar home. I kinda always wanted to write. But, I never saw it as an actual way to make a living. Where I come from, people don’t do that. So I never really tried until now. The jury’s out on whether I can actually make any real money doing this but that’s not really the point is it? I’m now in a place of realizing my true self. I’m knocking down the fences I placed around myself so long ago. Fences I created, like you said, by conforming to the environment I grew up in.

Thank you. I love it when I get insights to my deeper self from something someone writes.
