Selfish

We are all bound by invisible chains holding us, stopping us from doing anything. Our captors who hold the other end of our chain, stand in the way of our dreams. Each with their own agenda seem to yank us two steps back for every step that we take.

Breakdown

TIL that my life has been a lie. I have been breaking down my life into bits and pieces to analyze what went wrong and why I have become the way I am.

Few memories have resurfaced and I have come to realize that almost all of my outlook on life, my behavior and my fears are based on one incident that happened to me when I was a seven year old.
