Asking for help was never Darlene’s strong suit. But then again, is it anyone’s? An admission of weakness. But you can’t avoid the simple truth: the only way to patch a vulnerability is by exposing it first. The flip side being that exposing a vulnerability leaves you open to an exploit.
Annihilation is always the answer. We destroy parts of ourselves every day. We photoshop our warts away. We edit the parts we hate about ourselves, modify the parts we think people hate. We curate our identity, carve it, distill it. Annihilation is all we are.
