Inner Ring

Wow, it turns out that CS Lewis wrote about me. The phenomenon he describes in “The Inner Ring” is the driving force of my whole life.

When I was very young, I did things I’m not super proud of to get in the ring. Nothing major but still not very beautiful. Now I have other methods but it’s still the same desire to get into, or rather, to be The Ring. 

Well, at least I’m self-aware.

One thought on “Inner Ring

    “You are trying to peel an onion: if you succeed there will be nothing left. Until you conquer the fear of being an outsider, an outsider you will remain.”

    I needed that.
