Well, you know what it’s like when you first sleep with someone you don’t know—you like, become this blank canvas, and it gives you an opportunity to project onto that canvas who you want to be. And that’s what’s interesting, because everybody does it… and what happens is, while you’re projecting who you want to be, this gap opens up between who you want to be and who you really are. And in that gap, it shows you what’s stopping you from becoming who you want to be.
