Your friend posts a new picture on her social media account: happy and relaxed she smiles at the camera with a lush rainforest complementing the paradisiac picture. The white flickering light of your screen reveals the sad smile that floats on your face. Your mind is already somewhere else, dreaming and flying out to explore the numerous worlds that you want to live in. Ideas illuminate the bland world around you, hopes and expectations mould the perfect reality overflowing with new sensations.
A world full of opportunities opens in front of you but the same chains yank you back down to the sad reality of a dark room with the small computer screen keeping you company. The old cowardice forces you back into the same protective foetal position, scared of the next catastrophe that will wound you. You reason with yourselves to diminish the pain from the shards of shattered dreams that have cut deeply into you. Nothing fits because you do not want anything to fit, the adventure is over.
