self portrait - age 40
You worry about everything that you do.
You look away from the things that are hard to do.
You are always making excuses for yourself.
You think you are always right.
You lack faith in yourself.
You cannot see the other person's point of view.
You avoid people, live too much within yourself.
You have no aim in life.
You lack outside interest.
You have fits of temper.
You go around with a chip on your shoulder.
You neglect physical health, appearance.
You are not tolerant and have no control of your emotions.
You cannot form friendships.
You are unable to laugh at a situation or at yourself.
From Louise Bourgeois' diary, May 6 and 7 1950
