“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
– Oscar Wilde
Isn’t this what everyone fears? To think like another person, breathe in their ideas and eventually lose sight of who you really are. I’ve been there. Waking up in the morning not feeling the least bit like yourself. Lying to yourself repeatedly. Unable to distinguish between your thoughts and convincing yourself every day that you were meant to be here, in the present. Absorbing yourself in to someone else is probably the worst thing you can do to kill your soul. Recovering from that is hell. Even when you do come out of the cage you keep doubting, is this what you want or is this what they want you to want. It is hard to break away. But you should try. You should always try.
