I used to think that I was a rock with sharp edges. And the world around me was like water and wind. The only thing they’d do was to change me.
All that I wanted to do was to resist that change.
Resisting was the main thing I did. It’s the first reaction to anything that made me uncomfortable and wonder.
I thought I was surrounded by “the norms” — how I was supposed to be — and I was trying to get out of those boxes.
So I rebeled. I kept resisting.
Until resisting became a part of me, my identity, a self-designed box.
When will I be ready to set myself free from that box?
When I finally realise that I can choose not to be a rock that’s almost hostile toward the world. And when I know that I can choose to reconcile and let myself be enriched from the good and the bad, the happiness and the tragedies.
I’m not a rock.
I am a river.
