Frida Kahlo on being strange

I’ve been obsessed with Frida Kahlo for as long as I can remember and I always want to write about why – but so complex is her lingering aura that remains, I can’t find the right words yet. Anyways, I saw this quote that is allegedly from an extract of her diary and it really resonated with me, so I wanted to share it regardless.


I used to think I was the strangest person in the world

But then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do

I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too.

Well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.
