I will never feel as free as you do, I will never feel as at home in the world. I will never feel as at home in my own skin. That’s just the way it is, and always will be.””
It has been mind-blowing to witness how impossible it is for many to understand experience of another. This I see as lack of empathy and compassion. It is indifference and ignorance, lack of imagination. How I for example am seen as someone who holds many things to be envious for still am very marginalized and I continue to marginalize myself because modern society is in many ways intolerable and unlivable for me. I see it hostile not welcoming. I am someone who is totally unaccepted. I should enjoy things others enjoy and I am seen as an outcast when I don’t participate these things I am supposed to enjoy just like everybody else. I should want things I don’t want, like things I don’t like, have things I don’t want to have, be like everybody else. Pressure is huge. Those things are taken for granted and we are to have fun, where is the fun? Many issues that belong to a normal ‘healthy’ living of Western people are decided for them and we are given this luxury but do we have freedom of choice?
