That's not to say I went out of my way to offend everyone I could because "fuck you if you don't like me". It's just a mental shift to realising that the only person I have to face in the mirror every morning is myself. And that that's where my self-worth and morals should derive from, not from what the people around me thought.
-So far, I've been rewarded for it. Despite tweeting things that are offensive and vulgar. Depsite tweeting things I look back on and feel shame about. I've accumulated a respectable 350-some-odd Twitter followers, but it's not really the number that matters. The number of people I respect and admire who follow me is astonishing; these are people who I would be intimidated to approach in real life, people whose work and creativity I am in awe of. And they subscribe to a feed of my unfiltered childish thoughts. I'm embarassed every time I remember they're listening, but then I remember they've listened for years, and they know all the undesirable things about me. They've seen me at my lowest, my highest, and everywhere in-between.

And they still listen to me. They still think I'm worthy of their attention.
