There is a process of stripping away layers of you and your practices, of what you decided needed to be true.

It could start with the teeniest of emotional itches. You might scratch at it just a bit and find some loose corner to tug. It might take days or months or rubbing and stretching to pull it all off or it could be done in one terrifically painful jerk.

Layers of should/could/would/MUST NOT BE can take a long to notice, let alone remove. You might find yourself making slow unconscious circles over one small uneven patch of you, drawn to the wrongness of it, for years before figuring out its origin.

I’ve grown some like calluses slowly and organically, others happen suddenly like plastering fist-hole in a wall.

But what is underneath, so long apart from the rest of what is: raw and new, fresh and clean, or some other thing, maybe better forgotten?
