youngprime

What have I done with these years? Always reserving part of myself from any one thing–art, work, politics, my relationships–just in case. Afraid I won’t receive the recognition I need in order to justify spending myself fully. Always keeping back a nest-egg, a private little hoard of self.

–Alayna Munce, When I Was Young And In My Prime, p. 206
