Anger. Fear. Tomato

I was angry.  I thought I was angry. Maybe, I’m scared.  I find that when I think I’m angry, I am actually scared. Scared that: I’ll never be enough. I deserve exactly what I’ve gotten for the past 48 years. I will always be a disappointment. I will always choose poorly. I will always love […]
