A Mantra to Live By
By Lidia Yuknavitch
The author of The Misfit's Manifesto shares a personal credo that leads to self-love and freedom.
Most misfits like myself struggle against the story that's expected of them. You know, the cultural scripts of good citizenship that come at us in life: how to be a woman, how to be a man, how to be successful at jobs/relationships/life, how to be happy, how to love, how to marry, how to fit into society.
Misfits chafe at the stories placed in front of them or on top of them because nothing about our experiences in life matches up with the traditional or mainstream storyline. We hit those storylines head-on, and the subsequent wreck either destroys us or inspires us to forge original paths.
