If you identify exactly who you are and what you stand for, what you believe in, what you value, and if you then only ever behave, act and communicate in a way that is true to you, then you never have to worry about where anybody comes across you or what you’re found doing. By definition you are never caught doing anything to be ashamed of. Cindy Gallop
I do what I wanna. I feel no need to reconcile anything in my life with anything else in my life. It keeps me honest and keeps me free. Dirty Pretty thangs
