I'm a square peg.
I’m a square peg who only very recently realised that I had spent my life trying to squeeze myself into round holes.
Since burning out, I’ve come to realise that in order to try and fit these round holes, what I had begun to do was shave off my corners. To take away small pieces of myself bit by bit, very slowly, imperceptibly over such a long time that I almost looked like a round peg on the outside by the time I burnt out. I certainly fit in the round hole I had created for myself.
Yet, I was still a square peg.
