Lost & Found

I just love it when I find quotes that seem so directed to me that it's scary...most recently I saw this one:

"You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."

Breakfast at Tiffany's

It always helps to understand myself and to see that I'm not the only one with the same freaky fears...I am afraid of cages...but mostly I'm afraid of being in there alone...and then sometimes...very rarely someone comes along and promises not to cage me but that never really lasts. So now, I say bring on the cages...let's lock ourselves inside!
