When my heart is outside of me

The personality is a set of conditioned behaviours based on past experience. It is an accretion of memory; it functions as an individualized protective device. As personality dictates, some men habitually fight, other men fawn.

I am not my personality. The snail’s shell is not the snail.

Personality is not for improving. It is for dying to, for sloughing off.

I love when I am vulnerable, when my heart is outside of me.
