So we live and learn. What are some of the life lessons you want to share with us?
Do some story-telling - we love it.
Ok I have one.
To summarise by a quote, my life lesson is: "Family is not whose blood you have, but who you care about."
I don't know what the quotation is supposed to mean, but I take it literally. I have gone through a lot, and so has my immediate blood relations, and after everything we've done, I have realised that we are not meant to be together.
I don't know if they have figured it out yet; it is likely that they still think I will stick around. But I won't - as long as I get the right opportunity, I will evaporate off their lives and minds.
According to the quotation, I do not have any family right now. And I feel I am finally in a good place. "A clean slate" - but it feels cleaning the slate was much more self-fulfilling and I feel stronger and invulnerable after this.
We all feel invulnerable when we for the first time in our lives realise we are independant, that we really can take care of ourselves.
You are still in the prison of the 'oportunity fo life', still waiting for the world to free you before you give yourself the freedom of the world.
The world costs nothing even if your freedom costs everything.
Just as the world pays everything and your freedom pays nothing.
Does not mean once we realise we no longer need others that they dont still need us.
Could be a trap could be the price of freedom?
There are still those who must give up thier family because they are no good for them.
No one will allow you to torture them like your family.
Do you want to leave them for their sake or for your own?
Oh come on guys, I'm sure if you just think a little, all of you have something to say about your lives!
