let life be messy, let people be messy

Encourage messiness and uneasiness. I used to think I could collect imaginary tokens for pretending life was perfect and happy. Only until I realized that life became perfect when I stopped pretending. When I started letting life be messy, I began to understand that revealing parts of myself or by the truck loads is what exactly what is pure and raw and real.
Let life be messy. Let people be messy. Make a beautiful mess.
