Just: Essays in 100 words

Just is a word used to minimize and limit. It saps verbs of their agency. Just is short for "if I may" or "will you allow". If it's ok with you, I just feel. If you allow me, I just need. If you agree, I just think. Just is an apology before the action ever takes place. I'm sorry I want. I'm sorry I feel. I'm sorry I think. It implies "I can be smaller. I can be less."
This word permeates me. It is threaded through every fiber, down to my genes. Thus I speak myself from the world.
