Today I woke up with a strange feeling that I had to do something with my life…
I do not know why this has happened…
In theory my life is normal and quiet, I have a close family, I have everything I need, I’m a good student, I am tall, thin and pretty enough.
I have many friends, I’m cheerful and outgoing, I like normal things…
But that feeling I felt today has left me a feeling that I had never had.
My family and friends have laughed at me, and they have told me that I worry about silly things.
and I do not understand the lack of understanding of people
So today was a horrible day and sad and I’m still trying to figure out that I’m missing in my life…

AND IT IS PRECISELY IN THAT 10% WHERE YOUR LOST THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THE FULLNESS OF LIFE…
THERE IS NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE CONTACT HUMAN.
