Restraint & Expression

If living is about balance, then I have veered far into the side that thinks and controls rather than feels and does.

The repercussions of my past acts haunting me, shame and regret are shackles that bind me.

We as a society restrain our impulses to adjust and adapt as social beings.

Those impulses we hold deeply bound inside us grow stronger with the restraints.

Erupting unexpectedly somewhere, somehow.

Living is a constant negotiation between self-restraint and expression, where we constantly seek the balance that allows us to be. Alive.
