So our #MCM @areallifeangel will be featured slightly different as a conversation. Shai was also unconventional as he was nominated by two people. Also I @dust_blaze will come out from behind the GUTS curtain for a moment to share our conversation and reveal how someone can win your heart in a short amount of time. Only GUTS questions will be labeled, all else is Shai.

Shai: I don't necessarily know what to share haha I'm better at answering in the form of a questions.

GUTS: Ok hmm well let’s start with this—Is there anything you feel misunderstood about?

I think I'm misunderstood in the sense of how people assume I'm this perfect angelic person and they want me to upkeep this image. I always try my best to be the light in the world, to try to balance out the evil but that can be really exhausting. I try but I’m also cynical and I feel like hiding from the world all the time.
GUTS: Where does this sense of duty come from? Also it’s in your handle. Is that a nod to the capacity that you are what they perceive?

The sense of duty comes from growing up and feeling a lack of love and compassion in the world. From being raised in an evangelical church, taught to be someone who was a caretaker. My mom really put it in my head that the world was a place that was against me and to carry myself in a way that was divine and light. And yeah, I think I signed myself up for that perception. If I had a $1 for every time someone told me I was a real life angel I'd be able to pay months of rent and then some.

I only say that because you said it’s an assumption. ✨ No the virtue is really authentic. It's always just expected, and when you're an empath, you take in more and it's super tasking. ✨ GUTS: Were you born and raised in NYC? ✨ I was born in Syracuse, NY. It's a weird place. I felt alienated but it’s also a place that I hold near and dear to my heart. If you aren't either a scholar or an athlete, it can be hard to flourish. ✨ GUTS: What was it like moving into the city? Have you lived here for a while? (Continued in comments) #GutsNYC
