I’m not the same person outside these walls.
In here I let go of the need to be judged, of the constant self-appraisal of worth.
In here I move with confidence because I know what I’m doing makes me feel good, makes me stronger, makes me better.
In here I judge myself and others based on their burning effort, their will and their fortitude, not on their completion of a certain standard.
In here I strip value away from appearance and apply it to integrity.
You might not recognize me if you saw me outside.
Because in here I breathe fire.
