Against The Backdrop was a seemingly appropriate name as so much of my childhood was spent adapting to the setting or conditions in which I was living.
“The expression against the backdrop of (something) is a figurative and imaginative way to describe what’s going on in the background or surrounding context when something else happens”
As I grew older, I learned to build a wall around me and by doing so it became easier to effectively live a lie. As a result, I appeared to be perfectly happy on the outside while I was wagering a storm behind the wall.
I continue the struggle to be true to myself, but have found life to be a more peaceful place when I am mindful of the space I am and the body I am learning to love.
