As we exist on this planet, us Homo Sapiens fight a war within, every single day that we live and breathe. No matter the persona that others we coexist with may give off, everybody is fighting some sort of dispute within. I have found myself trying very hard to give myself a careless identity. At times, I tell myself I wish I felt no emotion, felt no pain, and didn’t care. When I wish these things, I have the tendency to convince myself that they are true. That I do not feel pain or have emotion, and then I start acting upon this notion. I start hurting those around me and living a life filled with selfishness and self-riotousness. What kind of person does that make me? The feeling of having to do what is best for me runs through my veins and I slowly stop acknowledging the ones that always cared the most. As this process starts, it’s now time for me to justify everything I do. Even when I know deep down in my “emotionless” heart that it is not right, I have no other option then to vindicate my actions so that I can continue with my life without feeling the warmth of guilt. But I guess this is just who I am. So, I will just apologize to those from the past and those in the future that I have or will do this too. I am sorry.
