“‘I want to write a novel about Silence,’ he said; ‘the things people don’t say.'” Virginia Woolf, The Voyage Out

[If you need to, have a Barbra Streisand moment]

A late-night epiphany brought to you by: Gabriela Yareliz

You are entitled to make decisions in whatever way you decide to do so. Some people mistake wisdom and maturity for uptight and fearful. When I am looked down on for the way I make decisions, usually it just means I am not doing exactly what someone else wants me to do. This is what I do: I just think about how I moved hundreds of miles away from home to a huge city through providence, alone, to pursue my dreams; I think of everything I lived before that, and I smile. Don’t let people tell you who you are. If anyone puts you down for your innocence, your wisdom, your maturity, and simply your way of doing things, just remember that they don’t know half of the strength inside of you. Be like Phoebe:

Oftentimes, doing what is right for you takes more strength and fearlessness than succumbing to what the world wants from you. Enough said.

XOXO–Corporations has me like Carmen Maura in an Almodovar film.
