Lessons from my Jade Egg #021


“If you only knew what I’m carrying around in here. I absorbs everything, like a sponge.

Every man you ever allowed inside. The ones who came in even when you said no. Every finger. Every object. They all leave their residue.

It’s not just that, it’s memories too. Thoughts. Stories. Conversations. Feelings. I hold them all for you so you don;t have to deal with them.

It gets crowded in here. I’d like to let some of this go. The egg let’s me do that. Thank you.”
