Maya Angelou, on growing up.

Maya Angelou said, “I’m convinced that most people do not grow up… our real selves, the children inside, are still innocent and shy as magnolias.”

I certainly identify with her statement, and was very surprised to see that one with such a bigger than life persona- Maya Angelou- felt that way.  But I do feel that it somewhat explains why we, as writers, have little hesitation to expose the white underbelly of our vulnerability to complete strangers. It helps to heal the child inside.
