... uninhibited... But then, I'm like, "What would people think?"

Tsk. If you were uninhibited you wouldn't care what people thought. Did Einstein care what people thought about his General and Special theories? Did Newton care what people thought about the calculus or his idea of gravity? Did Rene Descartes care about what people thought about his thought, and if he did care, would he have disappeared? Did Werner Von Braun care what people thought? Or Stravinski? Or Beethoven? Or Huddie Ledbetter? Or Adolf Hitler? Or Cecil Rhodes? Or Mother Theresa? Or John XXIII? Or Jack the Ripper? Or Charlemagne? Or Aristotle?

No sir! They were all uninhibited, just like everyone who has made a lasting mark on the world. They would skip naked among the hollyhocks just as frequently as they would do something to help the poor or depraved. Your inhibitions are caused by what you think people will think, and it is preventing you from reaching your full potential. Please, for your sake, remember that if you painted your body bright yellow and ran around town yelling "Choo! Choo! I'm a train!" no one would think badly of you -- they would know that you are a person of genius and would be envious of the impression you will make on the world.

Besides, you live in Southern California and no one would notice anyway.
