"Can't you stop the lies,
Falling from the skies, down on me
I'm still standing" 🌙
As you can see, it was extremely difficult to take a proper picture because of the light incidence; and what's really weird is that the entire painting looks completely different depending on where the light comes from, but I think that's the true magic of life, right? It's all about perspective, no wrong or right, just new impressions.
Tbh I've been in a pretty bad place for the past months, questioning my life choices and my study subject because I realized that I simply don't have time for the things anymore that, well, really matter to me, the things that make my life worth living for - like my friends, my art, my music, my dreams - and what's most important, my recovery. I was asking myself what I really want in life and if the things I'm giving up in order to study successfully are really worth it... Until someone who's more than dear to me and, more or less stuck in the same situation, encouraged me to throw all expectations overboard and only fight for and focus on the things that I want and have been denying all my life in order to upset no one, to let no one down, to make sure I don't have to justify anything I do. A weird survival pattern I have been used to, a kind of coping mechanism that will only lead to chronic depression I guess.
This now is a new level of life for me. But see, I am rather a happy loser in life than someone who lives only for the eyes of others 🐺
