I always wanted a great love affair: something that feels big and full, really honest, and enough. No moment should feel slight, false, or a little off. For me, it had to be everything.

I want to say when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different and I felt out of place, too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize: Different is good. When someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up and be proud.

………..Out of this I eventually get that dream match I’ve always said I’ve wanted, which is a singles match with Natalya. It would be submission match and the winner would get a cute little ‘Canadian Women’s Wrestler’ Championship belt which is adorned with a spinner Maple Leaf.

It was that I had started having sex, and that sex didn’t feel like enough, and no emotions were really enough, I didn’t feel…. it’s like there was always something I wanted to break out of, feel more, be more connected to another person, something more honest… and in kind of a moment of wanting to find something honest, I grabbed a knife, and I cut him and he cut me back, and we had this exchange, and then somehow …covered in blood and my heart was racing and it was dangerous and life… and… and it suddenly felt more honest than whatever this sex thing was supposed to be, this connection between two people was supposed to be. So I went through a period of when I would feel trapped, I’d cut myself because it felt like I was releasing something, and that it was honest.I had a desperate need, which I think most artists do, to communicate… to feel that whatever it is inside me, cutting or going crazy or whatever it is I’m feeling,… there’s something inside of us, we wanna reach out, we wanna talk to each other, we wanna throw our emotions and our thoughts out and hope that we make some sense or we get an answer… we want to just emote and hope there’ll be a response.
