Analysis gave me great freedom of emotions and fantastic confidence. I felt I had served my time as a puppet.
I know what I look like - a weird, sad clown puppet. I'm fine with that.
I had a desire to prove to myself that I was actually in control - that I wasn't a puppet.
I don't see anyone walking around with a puppet on his hand in real life. Puppet therapy is very common for children. It's not something that adults take on.
In preschool, I would plan out my show-and-tell every week to be funny and exciting. Then in first grade I wrote a play, and my classmates and I performed it as a puppet show.
