‘We can remember that between one post a decade ago and now, there were endless versions of ourselves and others, changing and choosing.’
I’m a firm believer that the key to happiness is accepting the the need for constant change.
‘But our pasts are always happening in real time, turning us into half-Tralfalmadorians. Anyone scrolling through my Facebook feed, which has existed since 2004, or who Googles enough to unearth my awful old blog, can see everything I’ve posted — every misguided opinion, every drunk photo and inside joke — with the clarity and presence of the moment I posted it. I am 17 and 24 and 31, forever.’
