October 6, San Mateo, CA: Insecure. I was feeling insecure earlier today. Seems like there are thousands of things that can make us feel that way. But most of them would probably go unnoticed by almost everyone. And none of them would cause the ones who love us to judge. But remembering that can be so damned hard. "Wearing flip-flops" is a phrase that I use as a reminder to extend myself to areas and situations where I might feel vulnerable.
