We make choices all the time, whether they are conscious, considered, internal, quietly unknown and seem appropriate to the situation, or simply safe and protective.

Like some kind of heavy, hard and big shell. Over time, it becomes harder and bigger. It seems to no longer connect with the body. It gets dark there, at some point you don’t understand which direction you are actually moving or whether you are moving at all.

One must always have the choice to be able to understand that something is wrong and, if possible, to change it – to leave an unpleasant “identity” and go the other way? The path that is familiar to me, that I am ready for, where I and my personality is.

Yes, this path is more complicated, it requires more self-defense, there is nothing familiar and comfortable for my environment compared to the blind decisions that have to be made. But, it is my path, my skin, my scars, my firm decisions that have been considered and evaluated. Yes, the results of this path remain exactly what I would like to leave as a sign after my stay here.
