Cool and Laidback

Saw these posted on Instagram… They hit home…

I’ve definitely used “cool” as a way to describe myself. Just like the text in the images says, there’s really nothing “cool” about being that way.

Literally, just had a conversation with my therapist about how not being expressive, hiding emotions, not speaking up, and being “cool”, is derived from insecurity.

I will never use “cool” and “laidback” to describe myself again.
