shy

Shyness robs you of your body's natural aesthetic in public. It surges with notes of self concious energy which at once imprisons and indulges our overt discretion as being the better of two poisons.

We learn slowly to let go with more abandon as the wants of a fickle public no longer concern us. There are bigger fears that draw our attention such as not having lived the way we wanted as we near the end of the road we have chosen.

One day we decide there are enemies much more powerful than a public shaming.

    Too true. And - not that you were implying otherwise - motivation for expressing and living our truest selves need not be based on one fear or another. The sheer joy of it, the sense of "rightness" and resonating like a string in tune are *friends* stronger than a public shaming. 😀
