Thick skin doesn't work anymore. I want to be transparent and translucent. For that to work, I won't own other people's shortcomings and cristicms.

I won't put what you say about me on my load.

Viola Davis

No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.

Or you don't.

Stephen King, The Stand
