Cartoon Wisdom

Here are some words of wisdom from my favorite cartoon, Steven Universe.
"You're supposed to change! You're never the same, even moment to moment! You're allowed and expected to invent who you are. What an incredible power, the ability to grow up."
If you've spent time in a restrictive fundamentalist subculture, remember Rose's words. Your path in life need not be defined by others. You are free to pave your own path in life. You are free to discover for yourself who you really are. The freedom to define ourselves is precious and beautiful.


  1. Wonderful. Just heard my DD asking a fundie friend if the friend's DH was still enjoying the soccer club he'd joined. 'No' said the wife, 'He's stopped going, he felt he'd done all he could in witnessing to them and trying to get them to come to (our) church. He's joined a Judo club instead.' So sad to me, the man can't enjoy a harmless hobby for the sheer joy of living. He has to be burdened with guilt about not 'witnessing' effectively.

    1. Jenny -- Thanks for stopping by. It sounds like the drive to proselytize is sucking the joy out of that man's life.
