Winona Ryder // “When you finally accept that it’s ok not to have answers and it’s ok not to be perfect, you realize that feeling confused is a normal part of what it is to be a human being. 

I seem to spend a lot of time lately dealing with the fact that I don’t have answers to a lot of the questions that keep coming up in my life.  It wasn’t until I finally accepted that maybe there weren't always answers, that it actually became easier for me to find peace with the situation and move forward. 

Being ok with not having the answers makes me feel vulnerable to something that is unknown.  When I am vulnerable, I am forced to be my true self.  Forced to remove the masks, pretensions, and time wasted trying to please others.  I am beginning to realize that it's only when I am being myself am I ever really going to ever be happy and that is a good thing.
