“Have I ceased to exist for the ones I left behind?”
“You wanted to leave them, isn’t it?”
“Yes. But I spent a considerable part of my life moulding myself to suit their needs. Is there any recognition of the same in my absence?”
“Those moulds were borrowed or imposed, not you. You are looking for yourself locked in broken pieces of a mirror. Look at yourself in the flowing stream. That is real. It gives you the liberty to change as it flows, and does not imprison you in expectations.”
I stand here purified free of expectations and opinions.
