okay okay so this movie makes me feel how the truman show made me feel. i don’t feel like i can say anything definitive about it because the whole thing feels like schrödinger’s cat. i can’t always trust my memories or perception and that’s okay. being crazy is one of my deepest rooted fears. so sometimes when i’m scared of it i just accept it and say so what. all i can really know is what’s happening right now and right now i’m okay. i’m usually okay. so why worry about it.

i love that i’ve been able to get that to sink in because i’ve spent so long of my life not being okay that i’ve been trying to consciously remind myself of that mantra. “i’m usually okay” and that’s something to celebrate. go danny
