Miranda July | Paper mag

I’m probably kindest to myself in my work. It’s how I practice self-love. I’m cripplingly critical of myself in every other area, not permissive, not letting myself be free, and feeling like I’m doing every single thing wrong all the time. But in this one area I tell myself: ‘You can do no wrong. Let’s just try this. It’s OK.’ Like a really wonderful teacher or something.
