"I think all the pressure that I put on myself has been paralyzing. When I graduated from high school, a lot of people wrote in my yearbook: ‘You’re going to do great things,’ or ‘I know you’re going to make it big.’ I realized recently that with all the time I spent trying to figure out what my ‘big thing’ was going to be, I passed over a lot of small things that could have really added up. The moment I became content with taking small steps, I started moving forward again."
I just keep seeing this as young!Sherlock. Like THIS is the man Lestrade first met, high as a kite, smiling, more aggressive, more emotional. He likes the new Sherlock, the one he sees with John. Sherlock had shut down without the drugs- but with John, it’s all the emotion, the joy… but now it’s REAL, without the desperation it had before.
Um. Reblogging for this amazing commentary. Wow. Headcanon accepted.
