Until you can actually see yourself as well as your Self in the most difficult people in your life: you have no chance to ’’return.’’
Let all (self-imposed) pressure to deliver go.
Let your fac(ad)e crumble and reveal the empty interior.
Let the IMAGEs [opinions, views, thoughts, beliefs, internal commentaries, memories, reminiscences, feelings, facts, etc. about yourself, other people, the world, as well as the attendant sense of guilt, loss, shame, inadequacy, anxiety, inferiority, regress, progress, mission, success, superiority, etc.] that fill in the gaps and contract the flow of perception melt and leak away, and reveal the world again and again—as quickly as they congeal.
Let there be more truth and less fixation.
feel free to be at ease with where you’re truly at wherever that is
relax into lackluster
and you shall shine
I am free to be nobody
there is nothing to be solved or resolved
there is nothing to prove
there is nothing to lose

the more you strive to differentiate yourself
the more seamlessly you blend into the big bland of others
that is, the more you differ on the surface the less authentic you are
authenticity is the common denominator
that only the rare breed align with
and yet, alterity is the essence of life
the less you bother about differentiating yourself from the human mass the more you differ from others
there are plenty of reasons to feel dejected about
but the time you invest in indulging in sadness
could be spent distracting others from theirs
