After doing what I done with my friends, I realized now have I have depth to my character beyond the superficial and stereotypical.
No longer am I “just” defined by my race, culture and the way I look.
It is amazing feeling to go really deep and focus on building yourself in knowledge and skill that is abstract beyond the chemical and biological mess we are.
I can proudly say that I have done this and that that is different from what is expected of me at first glance.
I did stuff with my friends that is non-linear. Doing something beyond yourself is a great feeling to escape from reality and routine of daily life.
Building something that is all about your “story” and direct from your heart and soul is what sets you apart and free. Sets your heart alive.
Take the time to go against the grain and see how it makes you feel. It can be healthy and is what you really need.
