You don’t have to travel anywhere to see it, just look around where you are now. There’s a gap. Where there should be confidence there is insecurity. Where there should be an understanding of one’s own value there are questions of worth. Where there should be a sparkle and a passion towards life, there is a body that is only going through the motions, feeling that simply surviving this life is enough.
