On the desire to be misunderstood
The Sam Harris quotes are profound. The desire to be misunderstood has legs too. I think hope to hear those in a song someday.
As always, I couldn’t look away. Thank you for...you. And for the reminder to get Sam Harris back in my orbit.
Mon Dieu! So fucking transparent it sends epiphanic chills up my spine and straight to my heart.
Were you peeking in my window? This is so on-point:
‘And because I knew alcohol was one domino along a painful, serpentine path of lies. I knew that if I drank, even now, I would nurse my glass of cabernet over dinner like an adult, and then, only once my partner had fallen asleep, would I peel their arms off of me and quietly slip out of bed to polish off whatever was left on the kitchen counter.’
The serpentine path of lies is genius. I’m not sure why your former sponsor didn’t like you writing about the core shit, but this Alkie appreciates it! Keep telling the truth my friend it sets us free.
Beautifully honest, Aly. Thank you.
Read. Sit with. Think about. Deep breaths. Re-read. Sit with.
